I've read stats that there are over 300,000,000 firearms in private possession in the US. Essentially, you can find a gun in every other household, and chances are that if you break in any empty house at random, there's a 50/50 chance you will find a gun, probably in less than five minutes, either under the mattress, in the dresser or in the couch cushions, fully loaded and ready for you to use it to rob a 7/11. Over 500,000 guns are stolen each year -- maybe more, since gun owners are loathe to report gun theft. 30,000 people are killed, about 1/2 by suicide, and over 100,000 are wounded by guns every year. I particularly like the gun death in Massachusetts where a Sheriff gave a full-auto Uzi to a 9 year old who pulled the trigger and shot himself in the head -- a dozen times. The best part is that the Sheriff got off. So did the dad who brought the kid to the gun club and encouraged him to fire an unfamiliar machine gun. It's absolutely hilarious to see the NRA nutbags say there is no gun problem in America, especially when they are paying for the defense of "responsible" officials and parents like these two love bugs.(Bold my emphasis.)
I love the caring he shows for the dead child. The Other Side™ is always so concerned about the children, unless, of course, it's a child of The Other. Then they can chortle to their heart's content when one dies. He was talking about this incident in gun-control paradise Massachusetts. It wouldn't surprise me if he wanted a copy of the video of the incident so he could ... nope - not going there.
When people tell you "nobody wants to take your guns away!" point them at Jay Bazzinotti.
