NBC Nightly News segment on this:
“It happened in West(by God)Virginia, where every household has 15 guns”
“An AK47 assault rifle”
“Are you at risk?”
“What will Washington do to help?”
At first I thought 15 guns was too low until I realized that’s probably an average and includes the folks who retired in WV from places like NY, NJ and MD.
