Just scanning the linked article, it looks like those are just the ones requiring background checks. I wonder what the total is.
Great point! I am sure there are many Americans who carry and/or own several guns from years ago, with none of them registered! One thing Americans will NOT allow to happen is to have our 2nd amendment taken away.
This morning I read a report about a home owner who's home was broken into by criminals that were looking to steal his guns. The home owner was one identified by the Journal News as having guns. The criminals were caught.
I believe it would be fair to publish the names and addresses of all the DEM gun grabbers and the CEO, Editor and board of directors of Journal News to display their gun ownership or lack there of!
The criminal thugs, those who shouldn’t own them and are not burdened by the law, have probably acquired just as many.
“Just scanning the linked article, it looks like those are just the ones requiring background checks. I wonder what the total is.”
A very close friend of mine has six purchased in the past 18 months, and none required background check. I would guess that the real total is really, really huge. Understand, of course that many of the guns bought not requiring bg cks are not new. All the same, they have increased the supply and spread it out among many new owners.
And for what it is worth, none of these people are buying guns so that they will have something to offer in any kind of a ‘buy back’. Most of these people will not ‘register’, nor will they ever turn them in...these people are buying guns now to defend the 2nd Amendment and the Constitution against acts of tyranny...acts of tyranny that come from within...
The following is from Isaiah and is aprapo to the current situation...God is speaking through Isaiah...
WOE TO THE LEGISLATORS
Woe to the legislators of infamous laws,
to those who issue tyrannical decrees,
who refuse justice to the unfortunate
and cheat the poor among my people of their rights,
who make widows their prey
and rob the orphan.
What will you do on the day of punishment,
when, from far off, destruction comes?
To whom will you run for help?
Where will you leave your riches?
Nothing for it byt to crouch with the captives
and to fall with the slain,
Yet his anger is not spent,
Still his hand is raised to strike.
Isaiah 10:1-4 (Jerusalem Bible)
