That’s a Lot of Guns

Saw this article today that claims U.S. citizens own just under half of all privately held guns on earth.  You know what that means – we have a lot of work left to do!  No mention of whether potato guns and pumpkin cannons are included in the numbers.

    I wonder how much gun violence is committed by gun owners versus illegal or illegitimate gun possessors? Maybe you’re right: what we need is further consolidation of firearms into private hands, y’know, to get them off the streets. I have room to lock up a few more!

      I haven’t read the results of any multi-million dollar taxpayer-funded studies, but am guessing the majority of gangbangers are not getting background checks and complying with mandatory waiting periods.

    No doubt we also lead the world in school detentions, what with all our rabid firearm associations: the finger-guns, water guns, soap bubble guns and so forth.
