According to a Breitbart report, Children appear to be benefitting from stay-at-home orders many states have implemented during the Wuhan Virus outbreak in the United States.
A Gallup poll reported that a large majority of children have expressed “enjoyment” and “happiness” while staying at home with their families.
In a survey of 1,039 U.S. adults who are parents of children under the age of 18, Gallup reported the following:
Gallup reported on its survey of 1,039 U.S. adults who are parents of children under the age of 18:
“Close to nine in 10 parents of children under the age of 18 say their children experienced enjoyment (89 percent) and happiness (88 percent) “during a lot of the day” prior to the day they were interviewed. However, with many children receiving distance learning or being home-schooled for part of the day rather than attending school, 65 percent of parents report their children are experiencing boredom.
Five other emotions — all negative — are currently far less common among children, including worry (26 percent), stress (24 percent), anger (24 percent), sadness (20 percent) and loneliness (20 percent).
Stress and worry are largely confined to parents — roughly seven in 10 parents report feeling these emotions themselves, each by at least 40 percentage points higher than the comparable percentage among children.”
Gallup also added that parents reported feelings of enjoyment or happiness but not to the same degree as their children. However, children were also more likely than their parents to manifest boredom.
The Gallup poll was carried out on March 24-27 involving adults who are members of the Gallup Panel using random sampling.
The methodology portion of the poll noted the following:
“Gallup weighted the obtained samples to correct for nonresponse. Nonresponse adjustments were made by adjusting the sample to match the national demographics of gender, age, race, Hispanic ethnicity, education and region. Demographic weighting targets were based on the most recent Current Population Survey figures for the aged 18 and older U.S. population.”
“For results based on any individual sample, the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 6 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level. Margins of error for subgroups are higher.”
Although the business and school closures are an inconvenience for many American families, there may be a silver lining. Some Americans may inadvertently come across the benefits of homeschooling and realize that the American education system is both sub-optimal and soul-crushing for children.
Not all crises have to turn out 100% negatively.
Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
