Determinants of black and white attitudes toward gun regulation: A research note


Journal Article

Should one expect different determinants of gun regulation attitudes for blacks and whites? This question is addressed using survey information on 1,361 whites and 129 black from the 1976 National Opinion Research Center General Social Survey. Results indicate that the pattern of relationships on the issue of gun regulation differ very little by race. This does not, however, preclude the possibility of racially different reasons for the same association or a racially differentiated association. © 1983.
