The Williams Institute—a think tank at UCLA Law that conducts independent research on sexual orientation, gender identity law and public policy—has issued a first-of-its-kind report on the attitudes of lesbian, gay and bisexual adults toward firearms and gun policy. The study was supported by a grant from the Hope and Heal Fund.
Titled “Gun Violence and LGBT Adults,” the report found that LGB adults are less likely to keep guns in their homes than their heterosexual peers. They are also slightly more likely than heterosexuals to support policies regulating firearms.
The report also identified significant gaps in contemporary research, particularly regarding data collection on the relationship that transexual Americans have with guns.
Please share the “Gun Violence and LGBT Adults” study on Facebook and/or Twitter so it is seen more widely:
