In America

.9 firearms per person. Some of us are slacking.

Also, of 650M privately owned firearms, we own 270M of them.

    Must be an estimate, ’cause nobody counted mine.

    Probably based off sales figures of new guns…. probably for a rolling time frame of several years.

    If we own 270M, then who is renting the other 380M?

  4. Wolfwood Says:

    I’ll bet that ours are better, though. I suspect you’ve mostly got things like .22s, S&W Model 10s, and bolt-action rifles as most of the remainder.

    Then again, what’s “privately owned” mean? How are we counting weapons owned by the Taliban and the Lord’s Liberation Army?

  5. Jim S. Says:

    So who went to the mountains of Afghanistan and the countless other places in the world to count all of the hand crafted weapons that come from craftsmen? What about all the arsenals of the Soviets that were loosed on the areas of conflict throughout the world? Are those state owned guns under an indefinite loan?

    And I think they should see how many serviceable and/or properly functioning firearms are in the world. I do recall some AKs and other POS rifles taken from some Somali pirates that were rusted beyond use (and I’ve seen some rusty AKs work!) I know during civil wars weapons get cached and rust away.

    Tell ya what, they’re not allowed to count mine. I don’t let them rust, either, nor do I have many .22’s or bolt’s. Some, but not many.

  7. Ron W Says:

    The only weapons that should be counted are those used by our employees, that is, government agents. Otherwise the government has NO BUSINESS knowing how many or which guns their employers have.

  8. Shawn Says:

    Just 270 million? I thought I once saw a survey where a more realistic number was 380 million.

  9. USCitizen Says:

    I ain’t no slacker!

    Bogus stats. They have no idea how many we own.
