I ran across this article and it made my eyes go wide, lol. It says that we USA citizens have bought more guns than the world's 21 standing armies combined. Whoa. But I am not sure if they are NEW gun owners or what. I personally know of people selling guns to other people, and no record is kept, so I wonder how accurate this article is. USA Buys 14 Million+ Guns In 2009 - More Than 21 of the Worlds Standing Armies Personally I am not too concerned about being invaded by another country and will sleep soundly tonight.
