Poll: 12 percent of Kentuckians with kids keep a loaded, unsecured gun at home a headline blasts, complete with tea-cupped 1911. The story’s based on a Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky telephone poll of 1,580 randomly selected Bluegrass State residents.

The results are difficult to find (click here), unreliable and misleading. How old are these “kids”? Have they been taught gun safety? Anyway, here’s something more interesting . . .

KHIP asked, “Are any firearms kept in or around your home?” More than half of Kentucky adults (55%) said they had a firearm in or around their home. The last time KHIP asked this question in 2011, 45% of Kentucky adults said yes . . .

Among Kentucky adults who live in a home with a child, 6 in 10
(59%) reported having a firearm in or around the home. This is higher than in 2011 when 4 in 10 adults in homes with children (44%) had a firearm.
