The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearms industry trade association, released the Firearms Production Report to members. The report compiles the most up to date information based on data sourced from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATFs) Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Reports (AFMER).
Awwww, poor babies. It hurts when your targets can shoot back.
I’ve done my part.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Just watched an Australian program about their courts. A fellow who designed and made a crossbow in his garage was charged because it wasn’t registered. The difference between “Subjects” (aka Serfs) and “Citizens”. The Left wishes to make Subjects (or corpses) of us all.
The estimated total number of firearms in civilian possession from 1986-2018 is 422.9 million, according to data reported in the ATFs Firearms Commerce Report in the United States 2019 report and including the preliminary 2018 Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Exportation Report (AFMER) figures.
17 million modern sporting rifles, aka “assault weapons. And at least 90% owned by people who won’t willingly give them up.
It’s going to be interesting to see what happens in Virginia if the new Democratic governor tries to disarm folks. The 2nd amendment calls “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state” which is what it sounds like soe sheriffs are going to form.
I lost all of my guns in a boating accident last summer. So now I do not have any. But I know where i can borrow one real
The 2nd Amendment was written by the Founders as a deterrent to tyranny.
Gun friendly states like Texas, Alabama and Arizona are very safe (not to mention polite).
Compare this to the carnage going on in places like Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore, where "gun control" is most strict. This is because the criminal element know that law-abiding people are defenseless.
Hmm, I can’t think of anyone that has one. Boats!
We have the constitution, natural and God-given rights, and the freedom to own guns and protect ourselves.
What do the gun grabbers have other than a supply of vag cream for their sore hoo hoo’s?
It’s about time that line in the sand was made. The best thing all gun-grabbers can do is find a country more suited to their weak spines and nasty temperament.
Guns have made more women independent and equal than all the feminists in the world.
Americans can be very careless in that regard.
And to think I don’t own a single one.
Well, too late now, dernit.
and every time the Dems talk about a Gun Grab people BUY MORE GUNS
I am thinking about buying a gun. Anyone want to donate to this poor country boy? Everyone says I should own at least one.
What happened when the Brits try to take away our guns the first time at Lexington April 19, 1775?:
Thomas Jefferson, I enclose you a list of the killed, wounded, and captives of the enemy from the commencement of hostilities at Lexington in April, 1775, until November, 1777, since which there has been no event of any consequence
I think that upon the whole it has been about one half the number lost by them, in some instances more, but in others less. This difference is ascribed to our superiority in taking aim when we fire; every soldier in our army having been intimate with his gun from his infancy. - Thomas Jefferson, letter to Giovanni Fabbroni, June 8, 1778
Right to Bear Arms
Passed by Congress September 25, 1789. Ratified December 15, 1791. The first 10 amendments form the Bill of Rights:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
I’m scared of a BB gun, I’d never even want to pick up one of those guns.
