    Gun inequality: US study charts rise of hardcore super owners

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...nership-survey

    Are you a hard core super owner? The numbers are definitely manipulated to make it appear there are less gun owners. More media mind games.

    I am willing to bet that that study does not include the millions of guns lost overboard and hiding in an unknown deep-six location.

    True, except for the purdy one riveted to my hip.

    Gun inequality: US study charts rise of hardcore super owners

    -snip-
    Then there are America’s gun super-owners – an estimated 7.7 million Americans who own between eight and 140 guns.
    -snip-

    Now there is a prime example of fear mongering by demonizing gun owners according to a leftist made up standard. Imagine the shock value of scaring people with the idea that there are "hardcore super owners" who have lots and lots of guns. After all, why would anyone NEED more than one gun anyway?

    Psychological warfare against guns at it's best.

    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Between eight and one hundred and forty is a large spread.

    How did the take in the count, the number of gun owners who well not tell a stranger that they own any guns.

    Another bogus study with an anti gun agenda.

    If things get so bad that you have to bury your guns, then it is time to dig them up!

    Here is what happens when you decide to hide them. pictures at the link

    http://gunwatch.blogspot.com/2013/01...mmunition.html

    Here is the future for those inclined to hide or bury their guns. It is exactly what the Obama regime wants. From the Daily Mail:


    A secret arsenal of guns and ammunition hidden in the wake of the Dunblane massacre have been found stashed behind a false wall by a builder renovating a house.

    Builder Simon Berni, 41, was shocked to discover a secret haul of more than 30 shotguns and pistols as well as hundreds of rounds of ammunition when he began working on a south Wales property.

    He said: 'It was an incredible arsenal - full, absolutely choc-a-bloc with eight shelves of fire arms and ammunition.'

    Please do not get confused between my personality & my attitude. My personality is who I am ~ my attitude depends on who you are and how you act. Remember always, do not judge someone because they sin differently than you do!

    Do not try to bend the spoon, that’s impossible. Instead only try to realize the truth… there is no spoon. Then you will see this is not the spoon that bends. It is only yourself.

    Interesting; descriptive statistics from the foreign press and not a peep of criticism of statistics or of methodology.
    The conspiracy of ignorance masquerades as common sense. I am responsible for what I write, not for your understanding of it. Gee Zeus, get a grip on 'yourself'!

    darn, guess you missed my comment to nightmare in this thread...

    oh wait, you responded to lockman and firearm iinstructor...

    mine initial post was a sincere query...then a follow up to your response. fact is if folk come to take firearms...they will start at the businesses that sell, shoot, etc., firearms and their customer databases are accessed so the 'collection folk' can follow those leads to take more firearms from the community's citizens...

    interesting concept isn't it...accomplice after the fact to the collection of firearms within your immediate community...

    Got to admit but at one time I had about 25, now only 3. Wish I had not had to sell the rest to cover scripts and doc bills and all that.

    Are You a ‘Super Gun Owner?’ Here’s How to Tell, But Should You?

    What is being touted as “the most definitive portrait of US gun ownership in two decades” is the backbone of a series of stories in recent days by The Guardian and The Trace, and now is a good time to ask why there is such attention to firearms and people who own them.

    Or what the AARP tv ads were saying about 50 is the new 40 and 60 is 30 and all that garbage. Old is a PITA but I have to admit-- its better than the alternative.
