Gun owners hardly bitter
An article by the author of the book "Gross National Happiness" reports survey data indicating that, compared to nonowners, gun owners were:
20% more likely to rate themselves as "very happen," and about half as likely to rate themselves as "not very happy":
Spent 15% less time feeling outraged at someone else
Although more likely to feel that those in need should take care of themselves, were more likely to give to charity and to donate blood.
"What we do know, however, is that contrary to the implication of Mr. Obama's comments, for many Americans, happiness often does indeed involve a warm gun."
