Driving Away the Vultures

•, by L. Neil Smith

Reporters couldn't resist bringing up the insane shooting of the even more insane Gabby Giffords and the lavishly catered anti-Second Amendment gun-protest "sit-in" held afterward by Democrats.That loathesome waste of skin, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was quick to blather (quoting the wrong number) about "too many guns on the street".

Let it be known by these presents that according to firearms industry representatives (hat-tip to gun magazine editor Jan Libourel) there are at least 750 million privately owned guns in this country, "of modern design, in good working order". That's about three per person, but I believe we could do better—make it an even billion as soon as we can.
