    The very last part of the article is eye opening.

    Sorry if this is already posted somewhere. I looked and did not see it.

    Wait till you get to London Texas, or Glasgow Montana, or Oxford Mississippi or Virgin Utah, for that matter, where every household is required by local ordinance to possess a gun.

    Mine too! I didn't know all those places had those great ordinances. The story is a bit old but I thought very well written, especially by a Brit living here in the U.S.

    In this article may be the first mention, certainly that I recall, of two hundred million (200,000,000 = 2 x 10^8) guns in circulation in the USA. I recall eighty-three million.

    You might be thinking of 83 million gun OWNERS. Because that's sounds about right for figures that I recall.

    I can't believe they completely left out Kennesaw, Georgia which has had a mandatory firearms ownership since way back in 1982. I feel slighted

    You forgot Kennesaw, GA.

    One of my favorite places.
