Most estimates range between 39% and 50% of US households having at
least one gun (that's about 43-55 million households). The estimates for
the number of privately owned guns range from 190 million to 300
million. Removed those that skew the stats for their own purposes the
best estimates are about 45% or 52 million of American households owning
260 million guns.

Some recent estimates:

  • A 2011 Gallup poll estimates that 47 percent of US households own a gun.
  • A 2007 Small Arms Survey estimates there are 88.7 guns per 100 Americans (#1 in the world for guns per capita)
  • A
    2010 estimate from the NRA states "Privately owned firearms in the
    U.S.: Approaching 300 million, including nearly 100 million handguns.
    The number of firearms rises over 4 million annually."

    and not just personal protection. We are guaranteed the freedom of any government tyranny by utilizing our prominent 2nd Amendment. THEY know it, WE know it, gun sales have made historic figures that pro AND anti gun people know it. Again, what part of the Framer's language don't they understand; "not be infringed upon"?

    Um, The Rifle Found in Lanza's Trunk is Not a Bushmaster.
    After two weeks of media reports that a .223 AR-15 Bushmaster was found in the trunk of Lanza's car, gun aficionados point out that the rifle is not a Bushmaster, nor even an AR-class assault weapon.

    Washington Post:
    "He had two semiautomatic pistols and a .223-caliber rifle, law enforcement officials said. He apparently used only the handguns, which were later found in the school. The rifle was found in the vehicle."


    CNN:
    "Three weapons were recovered from the school: a semi-automatic .223 Bushmaster found in a car in the school parking lot, and a Glock and a Sig Sauer found with Lanza's body, a law enforcement officia...

    "Three weapons were recovered from the school: a semi-automatic .223 Bushmaster found in a car in the school parking lot, and a Glock and a Sig Sauer found with Lanza's body, a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation said. The weapons were legally purchased by Lanza's mother, the official said."

    Now it turns out that the rifle found in the trunk is not a Bushmaster at all, The police officer is, in gun owner's jargon, cycling a bolt to clear the weapon. An AR uses a charging handle...READ MORE http://digitaljournal.com/art...

    Thank you Daniel, the clip is most provacative. This only encourages me more to continue blasting the libs. I see an opening to maybe turn the progressive propaganda off and that is through our schools. I was a committee of one that unsuccessfully fought to get American history and civics taught in the high schools. The only answer was that it was not taught because the kids didn't like it! Now I want to wage a campaign to get "Social Studies" out of the circulum. This is the propaganda vehicle that is being used to brain wash our children.

    I know individuals who has as many as 1000 guns so the stats. could be off a little. How do you libs like me now. Oh there is no limit on how many guns an individual can have in their possession by the way.

    I am pro 2nd Amendment, but do not own one by my own choice. Though, I will say that with each passing day - BECAUSE of the threat of crime and government - not necessarily in that order - I am much closer to making a different choice.

    I have learned that 40% of the civilian population are armed. Last year 140,000 fire arms were sold exceeding by 20,000 the amount sold the previous year. From these figures I belive that the American population trusts the guns in their own hands rather than in the hands of the government. I agree with them. Instead of harping on guns they ought to be looking into the large mental health issues we have and basically no long term care available for them. They are usually on a 72 hour police hold, given some pills and turned back on the streets. We can give Brazil 2 billion for deep horizon oil well drilling but we can't fund accommodations for our mentally ill citizens.

    Most of the shooting are done by mentally ill people. Our nation has little or very limited help for these individuals. We need mental hospitals for long term treatment and monitoring of those released from treatment where possible. At present there is only a 72 hour police hold on these individuals and they are returned to the streets with a handful of pills. In order to get a 72 hour hold, one has to prove that they are a danger to themselves or someone else. I took this to be defined as a botched suicide or one captured alive after he shot up a school, etc. I worked as a mental health worker in a Section 8 housing project. I was taken hostage and another time the individual wanted to murder me.

    Jails or prisons are not the answer. Most, it not all, the mental hospitals have been closed down. There are wards in some hospitals, but that is short term. Most health insurance policies cover it for only 14 days of treatment.

    To me, Agenda 21 is frightening. It is relinquishing our soverigency, liberties and rights to a world government. How scarey is that? Even more frightening is who would be the world Dictator in Chief? Agenda 21 is a nightmare that should be put to rest by destroying it and anything pertaining to it.

    I would rather see the guns in the hands of the citizens than the government. This occured soon after Hitler took power and we all are well aware of what happened.
