They're mad that their little hobby of showing their external death penises to the world doesn't get quite the respect that it deserves, or more importantly they're mad that they don't get quite the respect that they of course deserve and are confused that their giant external death penis waving isn't giving them that respect.A couple of stipulations—this doesn't refer to those who live in the country and need their guns for either genuine protection or to hunt their own food. Those guys are lugging around Winchesters, Remingtons and Rugers. Not AR-15s. This doesn't refer to those who collect guns out of genuine historical interest, as opposed to "collecting" themselves their own private arsenal (no one is going around shooting up schools with flintlocks).
Nah, we're talking about those fetishists who think their guns make them macho rebel defenders of freedoms, WOLVERINES! Yeah, those assholes. The ones who have bought a record number of guns and ammo and extra-capacity magazines because a black guy was elected president. Those.
Reality is that gun ownership is on the decline.
The gun ownership rate has fallen across a broad cross section of households since the early 1970s, according to data from the General Social Survey, a public opinion survey conducted every two years that asks a sample of American adults if they have guns at home, among other questions [...]Yes, Americans are wising up the idiocy of packing heat in this modern day and age. Just about a third of households have a gun now, and the trend is clear. Gun owners are shrinking themselves into a fringe. A well-armed fringe, sure, but still a fringe.
The household gun ownership rate has fallen from an average of 50 percent in the 1970s to 49 percent in the 1980s, 43 percent in the 1990s and 35 percent in the 2000s, according to the survey data, analyzed by The New York Times.
In 2012, the share of American households with guns was 34 percent, according to survey results released on Thursday.
And what the heck for, really? To defend against the tryanny of black Obama and black UN helicopters? This is the era of drones. If the federal government was really as tyrannical as these morons think, it would've dropped a few hellfire missiles from above, and that asshat playing "commando" on that bridge in the photo above would've gone kaboom. Nothing that external metal penis of his could've done about that.
In other words, our government packs heavier heat than anything these doofuses can ever own.
They are idiots, plain and simple. They are very useful idiots, of course. They have made Colt and Smith & Wesson very wealthy in their business of dealing death, and their trade group, the NRA, couldn't exist without them. They are hilariously idiotic, and tragically idiotic, and scarily idiotic (as our never-ending parade of massacres now proves).
But they are idiots nonetheless.
