    Good article, but I'm doubting that 90% of Americans own guns.

    Yeah I think it might be more like Americans own enough guns to arm 9/10 of the citizens. Now how do we arm the other one?

    I think actually most college age people these days are mostly ambivalent to the gun issue. But given the chance, most seem to like guns. I know that at UCM, at the past clubs and orgs fair, the shooting club got more people signed up then anybody else :dunno:

    The gun has played a critical role in history; an invention that has been both praised and denounced, served hero and villain alike and carries with it moral responsibility. To better understand the gun is to better understand history.

    I'm at Arizona State, and I'm surprised that I'm running into more anti-gun people here than I did back in Massachusetts. But then again, alot of people here are originally Californians :greddy:
    And college students in general are pretty fucking lame too.

    Though this chick from Texas freaked out when she heard I had an AK. What the hell is America coming to when a Texan has a problem with someone from Massachusetts owning a gun?
    But I also met a chick from Jersey whose dad owns a range, so I'll definately have to get to know her better.

    If they leave the state and don't like guns we don't claim them anymore.

    if you read the actual poll that was posted before the numbers were something like there's enough guns for 6 out of every 10 people so I'm not sure what this article is talking about number wise.
