Josh Sugarmann, VPC head, writes on the HuffPo (I feel dirty) that household and individual gun ownership has hit an all-time low. He even has poll responses to back up his assertions!
Which would be impressive, if the NICS data from the FBI didn’t indicate a trend going the other direction.
Linoge has his own poll going; if someone you didn’t know knocked on your door and asked if you owned any guns, would you tell them the truth?
Is it any of their business?
Regarding the VPC’s point: it doesn’t matter if all guns in the US have been destroyed save one; it doesn’t matter if only one gun owner remains; the right to self-defense still exists, and even if gun owners have become the minority, that doesn’t make infringing on basic rights allowable.
The NRA’s Annual Meeting begins tomorrow in Pittsburgh; I won’t be there. Unfortunately, all of my guns were lost in a tragic boating accident.
As was the boat.
And, for that matter, my secret stash of Kinder Eggs.
