This news article states that civilians in the United States own almost 400 million guns. That is 100 times the number of firearms in the hands of the US military, and 400 times the number that are owned by law enforcement agencies.
(Please click pics for bigger and better.)
Of course, a great many of the guns civilians own are for plinking, shooting small game such as squirrels, or collectors items that are held for the historical value. Even so, it is pretty impressive. Especially so considering how low the crime rate is in the US.
I think we can do better, though. What is to prevent us from reaching a billion?
As you chaps have so many firearms, perhaps you wouldn’t mind sending some our way again. 😉
If you can figure out a way for me to do that where we both won’t end up in jail, I’d send you a care package today!
Indeed, it’s a bit harder to manage without there being Nazis just over the channel, unfortunately.
Yep, it’s a free country!
