The United Sates has an enormous number of guns. Existing production records and known survival rates suggest we have upward of 720 million guns that are either serviceable or easily restored to service currently in circulation, with another million a month added to that total.
AT the same time, criminologists estimate there are sixteen million guns, one for every twenty Americans, in the hands of the criminal underworld. Literally anyone who knows anyone who used drugs or has a criminal record can obtain a gun.
Anti-Gun activist and former Congresswoman Gabreille Giffords has shown her colors with a sleazy campaign ad for anti-gun Congressman Ron Barber and against a responsible Congressional candidate, Martha McSally.
Here is Giffords ad:
Of course, Colonel McSally had nothing at all to do with the death of “Vicki’s” daughter. And, had “Vicki’s” husband owned and carried an effective defensive weapon, there is a high probability that both victims would be alive today.
The ad has no relevance to either Col. McSally or to the real world. The only thing it has relevance to is the world the Democrats have created, where gun laws sent millions of guns to the underorld; the world where even the most violent among the insane, like the Jared Loughners, have no cell in any institution for the criminally insane.
The world the gun control advocates, unable to recognize fact when it does not support dogma, want to force on everyone; and not just the unfortunate residents of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, New York City, Hartford, and Boston.
We are sure to see many of these foul and vicious attacks on responsible people who are trying to act in accordance with the facts. Instead of the degenerate dream world of the Sinister Left.
