Bad News for Jonathan Clark Sullivan

Linoge always seems to be on the losing end of thing:

(CNN) -- A decreasing number of American gun owners own two-thirds of the nation's guns and as many as one-third of the guns on the planet -- even though they account for less than 1% of the world's population, according to a CNN analysis of gun ownership data.
The data, collected by the Injury Prevention Journal, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the General Social Survey and population figures from the U.S. Census Bureau, found that the number of U.S. households with guns has declined, but current gun owners are gathering more guns.
I suspect Jonathan Clark Sullivan will give up his guns when (if) his testicles drop.


  1. Let's imagine that you're correct. It's hard to believe, but let's try. You want guns to be removed from our society. We have guns. Lots of guns. We're not going to give them up. What's your next move?

  2. Greggy: First off, I'm always correct. It's a gift.

    Second, who says you're not going to give them up? You? Are you willing to chuck everything (what little you have) and become a criminal?

    This is what cracks me up about gunloons; they always make internet tough guy noises about a willingness to go "to war" with the Govt. But the truth is the vast majority are unwilling to miss tonight's episode of "NCIS" and a bag of cheetos, let alone go to war.

    1. The good news, Infant, is that this country isn't likely to face the kind of gun control that you demand. You whine and moan about how we have guns, but that's all you can do.

      Here's a clue, though. Look at the list of organizations that gathered the cited "data." Do you imagine that a gun owner like me would answer questions from those groups? Or do you really think that many Americans in general would even answer the telephone when those numbers came up on the caller I.D.? In fact, looking at one of the "studies" in the article, I see that only between fourteen and eighteen percent of people called responded and got included.

      But do you seriously imagine that Americans would tolerate the kind of government intrusion into our rights and our property that you advocate? If so, think back to the 2010 election season and the town hall meetings regarding healthcare reform. Those would be mild in comparison.
