Yet, he fails to note than millions of citizens living in those big cities are unable to own firearms due to the anti-2A policies of the left, while armed criminals terrorize and kill unarmed law abiding citizens without fear of encountering an armed victim.


So if he is right and fewer people are choosing to own guns, then why does he think that the government need to do anything? If gun ownership is declining that rapidly, all he needs to do is wait for it to continue falling.

Anyone with half a brain knows he's lying. The FBI reports NICS data every month and there has been an overall steady increase for years now.

Any argument that fewer people are buying 2-1/2 million guns a month is ridiculous on it's face.

A lot of these guns must be wearing out very quickly if gun ownership is truly decreasing. 2.5 million a month = 30 million a year. There are 300 million guns in the country. So if guns last on average 10 years before they crumble to dust, then the number of guns would stay exactly the same. This assumes that no one buys a new gun without a NICS check (LTC, etc) and that people never buy more than one gun at a time. So the actual life span would have to be much less than 10 years for the number of guns to actually be decreasing.

I don't know about y'all but I expect that every gun I own will still exist, and will be functional, 100 years from the date it was made, not 10.

I'm certain if leftists are determined to confiscate guns, civil war will break out.

Please, leftist nut cakes keep your opinions just that and don't try to disarm me and the likes of me.

We don't like your disgusting...everything and won't bow down to it...
