A Gun for Everyone

While making an argument that it was foreseeable for a gun to be introduced into a hostile crowd confronting a person they thought to be a car thief, I said in class  that there were more guns in the U.S. than people.  No one tracks gun ownership so it is impossible to say, but I was probably wrong.  The best estimate appears to be that there are about 200 million privately owned guns in the U.S.  That’s still a lot of guns.  I stand by my argument.

  1. You were probably not wrong. If it was impossible to track gun ownership, chances are there are more than the 200 million privately owned guns. Unless your statistic is factoring in illegal gun possession, I think there are a lot more guns. Just a few months ago, my neighbor, in a quiet suburb in NJ, was arrested for selling guns.

  2. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I
    provide credit and sources back to your weblog? My website is
    in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from some of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you.
    Cheers!

  3. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after browsing through a
    few of the articles I realized it’s new to
    me. Anyways, I’m certainly delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!
