BTW, I'm not in favor of bans either, as I've said repeatedly.

I seem to recall that you have mentioned in the past that at one point you had several weapons including the 50 and possibly a cannon (I know we discussed old cannons once anyway...) and that you donated/loaned some/part/all of them to a museum/s. I don't know what your current status as a gun owner is. I also seem to recall uneducated redneck relatives you don't see eye to eye with politically and the mention of threats (maybe veiled threats) of violence from both sides.

In the meantime numbers...

256,000,000 guns x .5 = 128,000,000 in the hands of 3% of the population.
326,000,000 x .03 = 9,780,000
128,000,000 / 9,780,000 = an average of 13 guns each for 3% of the population.

or

600,000,000 guns x .5 = 300,000,000 in the hands of 3% of the population.
326,000,000 x .03 = 9,780,000
300,000,000 / 9,780,000 = an average of 31 guns each for 3% of the population.

Since some of that 3% own more than 13/31 guns...

Some of the 3 percenters only own a few.

Frankly I'm a lot less concerned with the collectors that accumulate a few million dollars worth of machine guns and keep them locked securely in vault than I am the asshole with a Saturday night special and a history of domestic abuse.

The only place those weapons belong is on a military base, police lab or museum, civilians do not need weapons of war.

Imagine this collector guy flips... or someone in his family...
Imagine the damage one person with access to all those weapons could inflict.

Imagine he just gets drunk and mad at someone for no reason.

You know things are tough when the WLB can't even keep his mass shootings straight.

Quote:Trump caught tweeting about the wrong mass shooting

Quote:On Tuesday evening, Trump tweeted: “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.”

Sutherland Springs is a village in Texas where ten days earlier a gunman had killed 26 people at a church. He had tweeted a similar message after the November 5 attack.

Or maybe he's sincerely offering condolences to texas, still... and doesn't give a fuck about California?  It's not like it's a part of his america any more than PR is.  

Not many people know this, but it's an island of blue, surrounded by sand.  Lot's and lots of big sand...and I think there's an ocean too. It's very difficult, believe me.
Eat em up beat em up then switch sides.
