Well when 5% of the worlds population have 50% of the guns you are beginning to get a hint.

Now where does this 5% live?

The good old Us of A.

With the number of US gun owners dropping decade by decade yet with the sales of guns rising, a pattern is emerging.

With every further fear filled frothing at the mouth by the NRA more guns will be sold, and so the MSM will report.

Yet, the numbers of actual guns owners will drop.

Can we see a pattern here?

I suppose the number of good guys is dropping?

Being replaced by bad guys that no longer see the need to be armed and dangerous to all around them?

So when technically as we see the number of gun owners drop we should also see the number of fire arms being sold  drop, we are seeing the reverse of this logical technicality.

Something is wrong with this picture


It is an amazing business plan, lose market share yet increase volume. It must be an economic first? Amazing really. How do you do it...oh

The National Rifle Association on Sunday offered young children free membership and the opportunity to win a high-powered rifle or shotgun.

A "Youth Day" at the influential gun lobby group's annual convention in Indianapolis was scheduled to culminate with a prize draw in which participants could take home a WBY-X rifle or shotgun supplied by Weatherby, a major firearms manufacturer and a sponsor of the event. All were also given a free six-month youth membership of the NRA.


Now if gun sales are going up because and ever decreasing number of people are getting more and more scared that could be seen as a worrying trend.


Most gun owners I know usually have a certain number of guns for a certain types of hunting they dont' rush out an buy a new gun every time the NRA farts, so you would in normal circumstances expect gun sales to follow pretty closely gun ownership trends.


Personally I find this trend somewhat worrying in itself.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
