Who will take your gun?

Gun Control.  Let’s review the facts:  up to 310,000,000 guns in circulation now.  21 million applications for more guns in 2013.  That’s a lot of guns.

Where do we begin the gun control and who will administer it?  Who will we take them from?  Who will give them up?  At the mention of gun control, the buying of guns doubles.  It has been hard to find ammunition since President Obama has taken office.

Let’s look at the gun owners again and see who will give them up:

Safety/personal defense  60% – by far the highest reason – I don’t think they will freely give up their guns because they believe they have a right and a need to have them.

Hunting 36% – At this point, no one is saying that these should be removed.  

The two top categories represents 96% of the gun ownership – 296,000,000 guns.  Good luck taking them.

Sport/Target shooting (this can also be a social issue of sport with friends) – Ok, they might give them up.

Legal right –  No way.  They will bury them before they give them up.

Just like guns – Maybe.  They probably shouldn’t have them because there is no conviction.

Antique/collector – Really – I don’t think people are being killed with antique guns.

Family tradition passed down – Maybe – depends on how convicted they are.

Work – police, security – Nope.  Justified

Animal/Pest control – No.  These folks probably live out in the boonies and would classify that hunting if they had too.

Hobby/collect/gun shows – Again – probably antiques and collector guns behind a case.

No reason in particular – Probably will give them up – again no conviction.

This was missed in the survey (they didn’t ask the right people) – theft, intimidation, homicide, gang activity, member of the mafia, general criminal activity.  Umm, this is obvious.  They SHOULD give them up but they probably won’t.

Should we start a government study to determine who we should take the guns from?

    More importantly and the question should be asked — is the actions of a few reason to deny the rights of the many?

    Catholic priests molested children — decades of abuse hidden by the Church; should we outlaw the Catholic church? Require people to change religion?

    How about drinking?
    There are approximately 88,000 deaths attributable to excessive alcohol use each year in the United States.
    Twice the number of firearm related deaths each year — and how many people will remember the last time we tried to Prohibit the consumption of alcohol? Or the unintended consequences that arose — the increased crime and power of the Mafia??

    You listed the number of guns but not the number of gun owners; common because it is hard to figure out. Given the Census numbers (households) and survey results asking about ownership; it is an estimate to say about 50,000,000 people own firearms.

    Even if we accept (as shown by the UCSB killer to be untrue) every homicide was done by a different gun owner (approximately 9,000 firearm related homicides) — that still means only 0.018% of all gun owners are murderers. And for this we have people talking about confiscating our firearms?

    Isn’t tyranny something the 2nd Amendment is supposed to protect us from?
