    • Wise observation. The studies I have been looking at (and I note this parenthetically) find a positive relationship between Protestants and gun ownership even using statistical controls for living in rural areas and in the South (and sometimes the West), which are also strongly correlated with gun ownership. So, there is something about being Protestant above and beyond the fact that there are alot of Protestants in the rural South!
