Gun Control: We Need Facts Not Fear

It is Obvious that the Experts and their push for “Gun Free Zones” are not forming the right answer.

Example:  Are there too many guns in the U.S.A.?  This graphic would stroke your fear but it does not tell you the whole story.

This does not take into account the number of multiple firearms which are owned. In Switzerland it is largely a single gun in a single home.

This does not take into account the number of multiple firearms which are owned. In Switzerland it is largely a single gun in a single home.  In The United States the opposite is true – most gun owners own more than one, making the data appear skewed.

Again, be mindful that this data does not tell the whole story.  Per Capita would be meaningful if the gun demand was equal on all segments of society – sex, age, location and type.  Most people do not live alone and that reduces the number of guns per household by 50% right off-the-bat.  Cyprus has a population of less than 1.2 million and a very turbulent history – How can that be compared in a simple per capita analysis with the U.S.??

Be educated about ALL of the facts before you form your own opinion.
