Original Starting post for this thread:
The United States has 90 guns for every 100 citizens, making it the most heavily armed society in the world, a report released on Tuesday said.

U.S. citizens own 270 million of the world's 875 million known firearms, according to the Small Arms Survey 2007 by the Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International Studies.

About 4.5 million of the 8 million new guns manufactured worldwide each year are purchased in the United States, it said.

"There is roughly one firearm for every seven people worldwide. Without the United States, though, this drops to about one firearm per 10 people," it said.

India had the world's second-largest civilian gun arsenal, with an estimated 46 million firearms outside law enforcement and the military, though this represented just four guns per 100 people there. China, ranked third with 40 million privately held guns, had 3 firearms per 100 people.

Sugars,

An even better move would be for you to RE-move your Reynold's Wrap Hat and move your ass to get a library card that you actually use.

Apparently PA crows and coyotes are atheists.

I see a lot of SUVs and trucks with PA, NY, CT, and MD license plates in northern MN woods during the grouse season- on Sundays too. I swear, some years I think it's a convention of East coast hunters.

maybe they just come to spray the woods with semi automatic gunfire. :-)

I love that we don't hunt on Sundays in PA....but that's not the entirely true. You can hunt crows and coyotes

If we could hunt on Sundays, we would. That would change many of the traditions that I love on Sundays at camp. It's a day to relax, get your gear in order, have a bon-fire, sharpen knives, walk the woods and scout, get dinner prepared for Monday after the hunt, play some cards, watch and play some football.

To clarify- I did not review the safety reports for all states; but the ones I looked at showed a downward trend in "accidental" shootings.

Just because I was curious- It appears only 2 states do not allow semi autos for hunting- PA and DE. I'm unsure when their use was banned, so I can't tell if it has had an impact on safety.

Whenever I looked for discussions on the "why" for PA, without exception, the "spraying" the woods/field seemed to be a very common comment in favor of the ban. Looking up the statistics on injuries by "accidental" shooting during the hunting seasons, I note a general downward trend in all states, including PA. Since the ammo for AR style firearms was not a legal deer cartridge until about 5 years ago, the use of AR style firearms would not have been used until then. If people "spraying" rifle fire when in possession of a semi automatic rifle during hunting season has been an issue somewhere, I wish someone could tell me where, otherwise it's one of those emotional issues with no basis in fact.

On an unrelated tangent- if someone could explain why hunting on Sunday in certain states, is not allowed I'd be interested to hear why. I'm certain there's a logical reason for it.

That would be a great move

@Fred....

If there was evidence that NCal and a couple of his confirmed co-nutters' social club owned working condition F-16s, tanks, surface to air missiles, and that naval ship laser, I would move back to Europe.

What a joke the NY SAFE Act is. I've read reports by law enforcement in NY that state the provisions of it, specifically concerning magazine capacity and firearm action, have absolutely no effect on public safety. It's an emotional act that with limited basis on logic, it was signed into law 30 minutes after it was voted on.

People just don't think things through.

So, you don't want to partner on an F-16? I was hoping. It's for the best anyway. But on that note, current flight regulations state the maximum allowable speed below 10,000 feet is 250 knots. It is also illegal to fly above the speed of sound at any altitude. Kind of defeats the purpose of owning an F-16, and that has nothing to do with weapons.

Without a fighter jet, why would anyone want the weapons designed for one?

Just askin'...
