I didn't really have any expectations about the actual number. I cringed every time someone used the total number of guns as an example of proliferation, because I know that there are owners of multiple weapons. I'd like to be able to dig deeper and see what the basis is for the 300 million figure. I don't know if that's based on sales data vs. manufacturing statistics, or specifically how they are getting that number. I don't know if registration plays a part in that statistic.
