Post 9 Guns 10 People - 270 Million Firearms In US

Worldwide, civilians now have access to 650 million small arms from handguns to semiautomatic rifles an arsenal that far outstrips what is held by police and militaries, according to the annual Small Arms Survey. It estimates that civilians account for about three-fourths of the 875 million such weapons in circulation.

Are we surprised? More and more guns roll off the assembly line everyday.

This, by and large, a very good thing.

I dunno about that. I'd say guns are too easily obtained these days. Maybe making them more of a rarity would help.

Making them a rarity would be a very bad thing. Easy access to firearms almost always improves a society.

Tell that to Columbine. I'm not saying gun control is a smart idea. Austrailia has gun control and their homocide rate actually rose. However, maybe the law can be a little stricter about who can legally purchase a gun.

There is no reason to add anymore gun control laws to the books. It should be made easier to get a permit for the American citizen than it is.

If "Columbine" is smart they'll agree.
