Thanks for the stats Marine. People who buy into this myth must fail to realize that the Chinese and Russians can manufacture cheaply stamped out weapons by the boatload from designs that have been around for more than a half century. Many of the most recognizably American firearms, like the 1911 45, have been replicated by many non-American companies. Taurus has 10 different 1911 models for example. I'd be interested to know what percentage of the 3490 guns from the US came from fast and furious and the program from which F and F evolved.
