I've seen this test linked from another gun forum, with the average scores being in the negatives. Wonder what the scores would be for a less biased sample?
Removing the fact that I legally carry a handgun raised my score more than 20 points.

37 without a gun, 17 with. Not factored in is that I live in Vermont where many of the people you see in public you know; where most people don't lock their house, nevermind the car; and when you open the door, the kind with glass panes, it's usually a Jehovah's Witness or a Mormon (bless their State of Utah) if it isn't also someone you actually know.
Yes, the questions do seem biased toward urban/inner city areas and a "younger" crowd. I think factoring in other elements, like whether you live in a high crime city vs. low crime rural/small town location, your age (you're more likely to be a victim or involved in an incident if you're under 30 or over 70) and other questions, you'd get a more reliable result. Still, the survey is good food for thought.
