CNN is drawing an unwarranted conclusion from the data. The only conclusion that the data
truly support is that there is a decline in the proportion of Americans who will give an
affirmative answer when asked if they own firearms. Extrapolating from this to conclude that
there is a decline in the proportion of Americans who own firearms is not justified.
The authors and contributors to this article seem to have a questionable understanding
both of statistics:
| Fewer U.S. households and individuals have guns -- A declining *number*
| [my emphasis] of American gun owners ...
when the graph actually shows a declining *percentage*.
and of firearms:
| "If you use a 12-gauge shotgun to shoot a rabbit, the rabbit won't exist after you shoot it,"
| Lizotte said.
Every rabbit I've ever killed, I've shot with a 12-gauge shotgun loaded with #6 shot, at
distances ranging from 20 to 60 yards -- and every single one of them not only still existed,
but provided plenty of meat for me and my family.
Even at *four* yards, there was still plenty left of the possum that I shot with the same gun.

esser problems? Besides, a stolen weapon means it isn't traced back to me. The main interest to me is to not get done for murder.
Just found one thing I like about America, you can legally beat the shit out of a policeman:
“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306.
Why do men die before their wives? They want to.
ROFLMFAO! Now that is the funniest thing I've read from a chicken shit
British troll who hides in another country while degrading Americans.
Let us know when you visit here Jamie and most of us will be willing to
display our inferiority in front of you. After all, we're psychopathic
gun toting westernized savages. Oh wait, then how can we be inferior?
Make up your mind Jamie. Though, we know you'll use the excuse of never
coming here due to your hatred. That's good to know but still makes you
a coward who hides behind the keyboard of another country.
Inferior......LMFAO! Coming from a country ruled by a figure headed
queen with very little say in how things actually get done. Keep
supporting that royal family, Jamie. They love you for it. LMFAO!
