One thing that stands out to me in that chart (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showp...7&postcount=89) is the number of firearms vs. the percentage of individuals owning them. The two data points are taken five years apart (2005/2010) but they would seem to imply something that is counterintuitive if looking at raw gun ownership statistics. It's easy enough to say, "Well, we have about 300 million people in the country and about 300 million firearms. Gun proliferation has reached a saturation point." If the data in that chart is true, firearms are concentrated into 30% of our population. So slightly less that 1/3 of our citizens are actually armed.
