The methodology is questionable. But even given that there were some surprises like CT being as high as it is.

Holy crap.

#1...those numbers are garbage, as most places don't even have such a thing as a gun registry.

#2...if those #'s were remotely correct...I'm personally better armed than every state but 1. Not counting the ones that tragically sank to the bottom of the sea.

21. They claim we have 11.6 guns per 1,000 residents.

Not sure about you....but I don't know too many people that don't have 10 or 12 each.

The article is garbage, has been since it came out in 2015. Their method is conclusions are flawed.

NFA transfers do not equal total guns owned.

Yeah most all in my circle of friends / family / coworkers etc are probably close to those numbers per household not per 1000 people . I donated all of mine to the local homeless shelter but would have exceeded that number otherwise .

Sad how they do a "drive-by article" that is factually inaccurate, but don't offer a comments section for rebuttal. MSM

Whats really concerning to me is the number of ignorant idiots that believe these things without questioning anything.

Exactly why this country voted in the likes of "The Squad"
