Generational Gun Control

This caught my eye and I found it interesting.

Apparently the Millenial Generation, more liberal than Reagan Era Gen X folks, are yet more friendly toward gun rights.

This puzzles the grandees in the Baby Boomer generation.

Note that crime started to spike in the late 60s and then dropped in the early 90s.  Like Baby Boomers were the criminals, then got too old to do crime.  Way too simplistic an explanation, but still interesting to see the generational plateau in the graph.

Is it a generational trend?  Or just a trend?  One from folks seeing what resulted from gun control in the past and realizing that that road might not lead to where they want to be, public safety wise.
