Quote from James D. Wright,

"It perhaps goes without saying that the ‘average’ gun owner and the ‘average’ criminal are worlds apart in background,
social outlooks, and economic circumstances. The idea that common, ordinary citizens are somehow transformed into potential perpetrators of
criminally violent acts once they have acquired a firearm seems farfetched, most of all since there is substantial evidence that the typical gun owner is
affluent, Protestant, and middle-class."
