Are you now or have you ever been a …

Gun owner?

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.

  1. That is perhaps the most amusing part of their pimping of this study… they treat it like it matters.

    It does not.

    On the other hand, their inability to provide more than a token “protest” at the pro-rights convention of the year… well, that kind of says something about their support base.

    • I’m surprised that many of them were brave enough to protest a stone’s throw from 65,000 paranoid, angry, violence-prone, could snap at any minute, racist, clinging rednecks.

      Shouldn’t the streets of Pittsburgh have run red with blood?
