I wish that all these writers and politicians would stop equating gun ownership with hunting! The last time I looked there was NOTHING about hunting in the Constitution.

Because the right to keep and bear arms ain’t about hunting, Jack.

According to a Gallup poll from October 2011, 47 percent of all Americans reported ownership of a gun in their home or on their property. Gallup estimated that 34 percent of Americans age 18 and over personally own a gun.

There are an estimated 315 million people in the US and 115 million households. Realizing the the 70-80 million number comes from the NRA -- only 70-80 gun owners still sounds low.

And US gun owners are going to outnumber Ubama’s armed brown shirts 100 to 1.

It’s not about hunting. Which word don’t Liberals understand?

I imagine that a good number of these gun owners are former hunters. I’m one of them. I have not hunted in years but I still own my guns.

This is almost a complete 180 from where it was in 1993. Then it was hunters dominating the percentages - which was why they were able to get the bans through with the support of the Fudds.

Not so much any more.
