    against the oncoming tsunami of citizens demanding a shit-for-brains abridgement of their Constitutional right to keep and bear arms...?

    myself, I fully expect my congressman (R), who has an "A" rating from the NRA, to wimpily cave in to calls for "reasonable gun control"...

    how 'bout yours...?

    88 of every 100 people own guns in this country.

    Think they know what side of the vote they'll want to be on?

    It depends on constituents and NRA pressure.

    Many gun owners want change - including me. Many of us are sick of NRA extremist bullshit.

    How many gun owners are NRA members? Hint: Only a fraction...about 4.3 million members.

    Your 88/100 figure smells like bullshit.

    But regardless, I own two guns.

    I'm not going to lose any sleep over some new regulations or some assault rifles getting banned.

    you only need to ask.

    Guns in the United States: Facts, Figures and Firearm Law

    Your willingness to allow your government to shackle you is hardly My problem.

    The percentage of gun owners who would allow themselves to have further restrictions, or in the case of the OP, to be totally disarmed, is an insignificant number.

    Your inability to read for comprehension has caused you to pass off inaccurate information.

    Your link doesn't say 88 out of 100 people in this country own a gun. That's absurd. It says the "rate of private gun ownership in the United States is 88.8 firearms per 100 people."

    Actually, I doubt 88 out of 100 people could even afford a gun.
