Gun Ownership

Women: Fastest-Growing Group of US Gun Owners
Women are buying guns like crazy. The gun industry and the NRA are 100% in support of this. Do guns really make us safer or do they just provide the illusion of safety?

BULLETS DON’T GROW ON TREES: Local gun owners feel nationwide ammo pinch
Someone is most likely making a lot of money off of this situation! :smokin:
The ammunition companies are not able to fulfill the demand of ammunition for both government and military contracts, and civilian sales, which are all demanding such unprecedented numbers at this time at once, so there have been huge backlogs on all of the common calibers such as nine millimeters, .223′s, and .22 long rifles. They are all in very short supply.

The politics of gun control
Hopefully proposals to ban assault rifles and high-capacity magazines die quietly.

Easy gun buying without an ID
CNN presents this helpful HOW TO instructing viewers on how to purchase a gun without any ID and which cannot be traced since there's no paperwork involved. It sure is nice of CNN to provide instruction like this! It's a genuine public service I'd say!

Kids with Guns: A Campaign by Moms Demand Action :shrug:
I don't see a problem with kids being allowed to shoot guns as long as they do so after receiving proper instruction and under the supervision of an adult. There might need to be minimum weight requirements set for high caliber weapons, but other than that shooting guns should be permitted.

Choose your words carefully. Saying guns should be permitted could be construed as issuing permits for them by the gun nuts that want to take them away from the people. Where do rights end, and permits begin? Seems like parents should be responsible for their children till they are deemed mature enough to be responsible on their own. My gosh. It seems I have opened another can of worms on a slippery slope! The constitution only says the people have the right to bear arms. It says nothing about citizens who's rights are more like that of children.
Make Trona great again!

'My First Rifle' - Real Guns Marketed for Children
Although Cenk makes some good points here, I think he goes a little too far in some ways too. Accidents happen and connecting guns made for kids with incidents where a kid accidentally shoots another kid isn't really reasonable. Adults just need to be careful about where they keep guns and to not allow a kid near a gun unless the kid is under the supervision of an adult. It's that simple.

Guns ARE NOT Toys - Stop Marketing Rifles to Kids
Cenk gets a little crazy on this topic. I agree that kids below the age of eight should not be shooting guns, but I think Cenk goes a little bonkers on this one!

Indoor gun range in a Telluride mansion
Amazing mansion and it only costs $18 million! Great location! Huge! Indoor swimming pool, a bowling alley, and, best of all, an INDOOR SHOOTING RANGE! Who could ask for more?
