The number of gun-owning households in the United States appears to be on the rise.

At least 44 percent of American homes now have guns compared to 51 percent without, according to research released Friday by the Pew Research Center.

The new study indicates a sharp change in gun trends in America, as other polls had shown ownership was declining in past years.

Requests for FBI background checks have reached record levels in 2016, indicating demand for firearms will also continues to rise.

In 2014, just 31 percent of households reported having a firearm, tying with 2010 for the lowest numbers in the past 40 years, revealed a 2015 research by the NORC at the University of Chicago.
