KIMT News 3 - As the gun control conversation continues, a new study is showing there are fewer guns in U.S. homes.
The study shows a drop in those who hunt. In 2014, 15 percent of those surveyed say they hunted.
The University of Chicago study also shows the number of households with guns dropped 31 percent in 2014. For Jay Jung, as a father with guns in the home, his goal is to make sure he's talking to his son about how to use them safely at all times.
“The thing is guns are a part of America, part of our culture and there is no reason to fear them," Jung said. "We just need to understand them not fear them and how to use them safely and properly and use them for the right reasons."
An average of four firearms were in the homes of those surveyed.
