Word counts

Speaking of California, the ATF sent out it’s ATF State Laws and Published Ordinances. Ride Fast notes some numbers:

California, 67 pages, about 120,600 words of regulation.
Massachusetts, 18.5 pages, about 32,400 words.
Nevada, 6.5 pages, about 11,700 words.
Vermont, 1.05 pages, about 1890 words.

    In Vermont, other than law enforcement or self defense purposes, it is illegal to point or shoot a gun at another person. What else needs to be said? Jack.

  2. Lyle Says:

    The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States: One sentence, 27 words.

    The Congressional Oath of Office: One paragraph, 73 words.

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

    Honesty and reason are relatively simple. Obfuscation is complex.

    Who cares about the word count? Last time I checked, NJ’s gun laws and regs totaled only one word: fuhgeddaboudit.

    It’s because we’re so smart we wanna use ALL the words we no know!

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
