    Where did we go wrong?

    Will we ever be able to show our faces in public again?

    Nah - we're fine.

    Those 2 counties may have guns in their home, lots of hunters (long guns) when I lived there, but can't imagine a proliferation of handguns.

    They can't OC, can't get a permit, and no immediate prospect of that changing - safe queens all I suspect.

    That's what they said in IL .. but people still carried. DAs in my county even said that if arrested they would not prosecute, and they were true to their word.

    Illinois and the DAs there have nothing to do with Maryland or Virginia and how the laws are enforced in either.

    Just saying .. make all the illegal laws you want, a certain % of the population will ignore them.

    Even so - and noting that they do not have the choice of a "private party" purchase - the have more than we do. That sounds like either a failure or that "private party" sales are more frequent than even the antis suggest. Thank $diety for that gun show loophole!

    The problems being tjhat most of the folks in that group (a) are for any of a variety of reason "prohibited persons", and (b) being such their guns are not counted for purposes of the survey.

    guess your 5 Oct outing will have a 'buy a gun' promotion so you can do your part to get VA on the list(s).

    I think, It has more to do with how much the state sticks its nose into gun sales.
    Not with the actual ownership of guns.
    The more guns you can buy and have that the state doesnt know about the better!
    And the lower your state will be on the list, and that is better too!
    My state has 3 counties in the list, and we can and do buy guns privately,,, the state doesnt know about those!

    I would not give this listing any credence. I don't think the data collection method used provided anywhere close to accurate numbers regarding firearms in homes.
    Open carry lets you tote a bigger gun.
