We have a quarter of a billion guns in the country perhaps in the hands of a hundred million people. Why isn't there large amounts of blood in the streets?
What percentage of the guns owned are actually used in committing a crime?
If 1% of those guns are involved in a murder then we should have 2.5 million bodies in the streets. If only one-tenth of one per cent of those guns were used to commit murder than the corpse count should add up to 250,000. How close are we to those numbers? Would you pass legislation to punish 99.9 % of the guns in the hands of law abiding owners?
Remember many of these same people believe you can tax your way to prosperity. No wonder we rank so low in math in the world.
