>>> There are an estimated 270 million guns in the hands of civilians in the United States, making Americans the most heavily armed people in the world per capita.
They (the author) say it like this is really a bad thing.
It IS a BAD thing;millions of people obviously have no guns at all.
“I can tell you that I don’t think there’s any other developed country in the world that has remotely the problem we have,” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said after the shooting rampage in Colorado.”
It is a bad thing, because Commissar Bloomberg can’t have his subjects kowtow to his every whim. We have a limited government (though less so with each passing day) BECAUSE of those guns. The American Revolution didn’t start when England taxed their colonies too heavily; the war actually started when British troops were sent to seize an arsenal.
That fact should never be forgotten; without those weapons the colonists’ cause was lost.
