MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research is to explore what internal differences there are, if any, between the attitudes of women gun-owners towards gun ownership in America. Two variables were identified as potential influences on women gun-owners’ attitudes: their political party affiliation, and the age group of their children (if applicable). To determine if these variables impact the way women gun-owners view gun ownership in America, respondents were asked a serious of questions using the Attitudes Towards Gun Scale (ATGS), which detected attitudes towards the right to own a gun, the protective power of a gun, and the extent to which guns stimulate crime.
