hahaaaaa... only you Ron!

You claim 589,447,365 guns were not used in crimes. Estimates say 89 guns per 100 US residents (wiki). With 313,000,000 people in the US that means there are approximately (89*313,000,000/100) = 278,000,000 guns owned by US citizens. Yet somehow nearly twice as many were not used in crime.

Stellar math displayed by some unknown, uncited source there!

"approx 589,447,365 guns werent used in crimes nor shot anyone. STELLAR record gun owners of America."

NRA says there's 300 million guns in US

Probably Rong doesn't realize the numbers he just posted are 589 million - he probably thinks that's 589 thousand

wes,,lil buddy,,i can TELL YOU by absolute fact,, that half the guns the average collector owns were NEVER documented. NEVER. I can tell you by knowledge that there are antigues and older weapons in millions of collections never documented in any way shape or form.

Now, i WONT even mention,, that those numbers thrown out by the mass sheeple medias havent changed since sandy hook,, YET the gun stores and shows have been selling them at a rate never before seen..Oooops i guess i did mention it..Ohw,, and i didnt know abc tallied black market counts? wonder where they get that info??

One way ONLY to get an accurate account of actual guns in this country is to go door to door searches.. Good luck with that...


Your the one thats all "facts and figures".. I suggest you get some fresh input.

The Constitution is a living document. Some amendments (notably the Second) could and SHOULD be amended.

What loyalty oath has people swear to never allow the constitution be changed?

The ability to change the constitution is in the constitution, fool.

And you doing so on a gun thread is piling the irony up to El Cap proportions

I took an oath to defend my country. I'm not saying the Second Amendment should be gutted, just modified in a resonable way that reflects America in the 21st century. Moot point anyway, i know it won't happen in my lifetime.

Colorado gave me whiplash.

I was just about to move back and twist one up and only weeks later they ban hi-caps.


Oh, the irony!

Yes JD, from enemies "foreign and domestic"...Our ability to defend ourselves from domestic enemies IS the second amendment. That is the very same reason "domestic enemies" is included in that oath in the various bracnhes of the military right?

You know,, we have thousands upon thousands of "gun laws" on the books across the country but with the amount of people here,it would take armies of LEOs to enforce them all across the board. Like a ratio of 1:2...That is why for the most, its all after the fact investigations. Chi-town a glaring example.

Get rid of gangs, that are KNOWN in this country and you would see the homicide rate reduce by at least a third or more. Its not the guns, but who uses them here now.

The question is, is Heller smart enough to realize legislation aimed at firearm SALES does absolutely NOTHING to contradict our right to keep and bear arms? Or is Heller just another politician who knows morans will vote based on meaningless statements like that?

Heller is a native Carsonite, class 0 77.. Hes had an ear full from the locals here that graduated with him. You do the math..
