Hello,

I am pursuing a master’s degree at the University of Louisville. I’m asking for participants to take part in a research project about gun ownership. The purpose of this study is to learn about gun ownership from the personal experiences and perspectives of white males. Eligible participants must be over the age of 18 and own at least one gun. Although the study is primarily focusing on white male gun owners, a participant will not be excluded from interviewing if they do not consider themselves white or male.

Benefits of participation are: a chance to represent gun owners and have your perspective added to the broader understanding of gun ownership in the U.S.

Interviews, which will be audio recorded, will be conducted in person at a convenient, neutral location for the participant. Examples are library meeting rooms and coffee shops. If an in-person interview cannot be arranged, a phone interview will be considered.

If you have any questions or you would like to participate, please contact me.

Doug, et al., might peruse the “olde” thread [ https://forum.opencarry.org/index.php?threads/gun-ownership-project.137355/ ] as if memory serves, there seemed/was research methodology deficiencies noted in the thread about the study protocols?

Tho gutshot volunteered...

OP have you contacted gutshot’s parent organization to ascertain their willingness to participate?

I remember this same "survey" several years ago. Don't remember what the outcome was but I believe it was in the Nevada thread.

Surveys and studies are infallible, especially in the age of name it and claim it identity. What if a gunowner identifies as non gunowner or vice versa? No problemo! ;)

I can't bring myself to trust this to be a real study. Why focus on white males? What about black males? Women? This sounds like a disaster in the making. This is likely a gun hater wanting to use any info collected against the legal firearm owning community.
