Seems as though the Usual Suspects have pissed INTO the wind.
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) reported in a national survey
that in 1994, 44 million people, approximately 35% of households, owned
192 million firearms, 65 million of which were handguns. Seventy-four
percent of those individuals were reported to own more than one firearm.
According to the ATF, by the end of 1996 approximately 242 million
firearms were available for sale to or were possessed by civilians in
the United States. That total includes roughly 72 million handguns
(mostly pistols, revolvers, and derringers), 76 million rifles, and 64
million shotguns. By 2000, the number of firearms had increased to
approximately 259 million: 92 million handguns, 92 million rifles, and
75 million shotguns. By 2007, the number of firearms had increased to
approximately 294 million: 106 million handguns, 105 million rifles, and
83 million shotguns. Cong. Research Svc quoted at Sipsey
