 All the push for gun control has backfired. New polling in late 2014 revealed that most Americans — 52 percent — believe guns do more to protect people than to put people at risk. That’s the highest level in 20 years.

A remarkable change occurred among black Americans, with 54% of blacks saying guns help protect them from crime. Two years ago, it was only 29 percent.
