Back in Iowa; I owned a lot of guns, but never many all at once. Between "oooh shiny" and financial reality I nearly always sold a gun when I bought a gun. I think the most I ever had at one time was five.
When I moved to Florida from Iowa, I owned three guns.
I currently own 25 firearms of all types (most aren't worth anything at all).
When I moved to Florida, my wife owned zero guns.
Now she owns 8.
I am storing four for a friend whose living situation forbids possession, but not ownership of his guns.
Yes, I have a safe.
But the point is that for some reason not a single one of these guns has killed anyone since I bought my first one in 1991. Some are even dreaded "assault weapons"!
More guns made for no more or less crime here.
If owning a gun makes me 28 times (discredited) more likely to shoot my wife or son and the chance before was zero... 28 x 0 = 0.
Oooops. Math be hard 'n shit; I guess.
