I rather strongly suspect that the younger folks getting into guns are doing so in the less politically correct disciplines- handguns, tactical style rifles, practical shooting competitions over hunting and traditional clay games, etc. It seems as though this is one reason why these new shooters tend to be more politically active- they have discovered a whole new world and nearly immediately somebody is trying to take it away from them.
