The authors compared high school students’ attitudes about firearm policies with those of adults using information from the Hamilton Youth and Guns Poll, a national survey of high school students on their attitudes about firearms policies. Most high school students supported more restrictive firearm policies. Females were significantly more supportive of most firearm policies. Students living in a home with a gun, particularly a handgun, were less likely to support most restrictive gun policies.
