January 2013: Almost one gun sold per second.
Almost 20 million firearms in went to the hands of Citizens in 2012. All Military and Law Enforcement in the US tops around a bit over 3 million. And some idiotic 60 Mayors say they won’t do business with gun manufacturers that do not stop making semi automatic firearms.
When we have Mayors that cannot do basic math, it is not a wonder why many cities are in the brink of bankruptcy or carrying a heavy debt. At the most, all Government sales would span 2 months worth of private sales. And whatever those cities do not buy, I am damn sure it will be sold in the civilian market before the Mayors could say “Maybe we fucked up this one, Joe.”
