I have a hard time believing that. Running EMS in this county, at least half the homes had a gun in plain sight.

 

Of the people I know, other than felons an people under 21, everyone has at least one gun. Over half have one in there car.

 

 

But then Ga has the highest % or carry permits in the country floating around 10%.

 

I could see places like NYC, Ca, CT an RI being low cause of law though.

The number's been growing.  Heck, I probably know a dozen people who are buying their first gun, and almost everyone else (with a few exceptions) I know already have at least one.

I can't speak for Australia but gun ownership has never been common in the UK. Sporting guns and shot guns in rural communities are common but held under police warrant and have to be kept in strict conditions. Guns must be kept in a locked steel cabinet and ammunition kept separately. Hand guns are banned but of course some criminals do hold them illegally. Gun crime is rare in UK and accidents almost non existent. For this reason all police, except for airport security/border police and specialist firearms units, are unarmed.  We have had in the past our share of massacres by lunatics with assault rifles and they are totally illegal here. Maybe we have always believed that the well being of the community as a whole must always outweigh the rights of the individual.

The news seldom reports on the responsible people.  It's always the folks like the guy in Washington state who killed his daughter while practicing his quick draw. Same can be said about a lot of things.  The media always focuses on the bad because there is no entertainment in people/groups behaving responsibly.

cc numbers are not 100% accurate, as you know many have handguns without permits, and I currently hold a permit and don't have a handgun currently. In Indiana unless your local police force requires it you don't have to list what handguns you have on your permit. I have been told you don't have to tell them squat, I don't know which is correct, but one co-worker while living in the county applied at the local police station and was asked so she told them (and apperantly the forward to the county and then the state), but I told her I applied at the county level since I am a county resident and wasn't asked, so I didn't say anything about if, how many, or what makes/calibers/rounds they carried etc etc etc, I figure if the cops ask for my permit because they see the gun or ask if I have one on my person then I will tell them what is on my person.

It is easy to control guns when you live in a country about the size of a large county in Texas. LOL!  Stop trying to compare the tiny country of England to a country the size of the US.  The greatest danger to your life and freedom is a government with too much power, not your neighbors gun.  The founders of this country gave us the right to have guns to provide a balance to the government and keep it in check.  They knew exactly what it was like to to be under an oppressive tyrannical government that had too much power.  Come to think of it it, that government was ENGLAND!  Our forefathers fought and died to rid themselves of England's stupidity and tyrannical control over it's citizens, and now some people have the gall to try to use them as an example for the US to follow. Unbelievable!  Anyone else want to act smart and try to use England as an example for the US to follow?

I believe God created everything. You might ask me where God came from and I would have to tell you that I don't know. You believe everything in the universe was condensed into a tiny sphere that exploded and created everything. If I ask you where all the dirt (matter) came from, you would say, "I don't know".

So basically, I believe, "In the beginning God" and you believe, In the beginning Dirt".
