    I appreciate the sentiment, but I think the presentation is misleading.

    It produces "percentages" based on totals, but I bet the percentage of citizens who own one or more firearms isn't well represented, because they assume that the firearms are evenly distributed. Finland and Switzerland may have lower "percentages" but that's likely because the Finnish and Swiss gun owners each own fewer firearms. Americans are going to have a higher "percentage" because of the number of large collections.

    Tom, while you're right, in this situation I'm pulling the rare optimist card.
    I'm hoping that my multiple firearms will find new homes in the hands of people that don't have one, but are willing to use mine for proper purposes when the tome comes.
    As long as the firearms accomplish my goal, it doesn't matter to me whether I carry one or all of them.

    Do you really think we want laws to be observed? We want them broken. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be crimes that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants law-abiding citizens? Pass the kind of laws that can’t be observed, enforced, or objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers.

    To TomAiello:

    Good catch. The multiple gun family skewing the data never occurred to me. Hmmmm. Maybe we need to start a nationwide mentoring system: "Train and arm a buddy!".
