Have Gun, Will Stay Right Here in My Shack in the Woods
The Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International studies has issued a report that says that the United States is the most heavily-armed society in the world, with 90 guns for every hundred citizens, and 270 million of the world's 875 million firearms.
Uh... doesn't that seem a bit excessive? I mean, I realize that Ted Nugent alone owns 20 guns for every hundred U.S. citizens, but that number still seems unnecessarily high to me.
Anyway. Remember that figure the next time some whiney, big baby/ little dicked gun nut starts grumbling to you about lib'rals tryin' to take his guns away from him. Yeah, this country's really hostile towards the gun owner, isn't it?
If I sound unsypathetic to the plight of the American gun owner, it's only because I am. I realize some people need to own a gun-- singular-- for hunting purposes in order to feed the family. Okay, no problem there. But since I don't think I know a single person who owns a single gun-- and I know a lot of people all over the country-- I'm going to go ahead and say that there are a lot of heavily-armed people with their own private arsenals in this country. Nobody needs a private arsenal. We have Viagra and Enzyte for those problems now.
