as a brit, where guns are illegal, I was just wondering how many people here own a gun?
and please bear in mind I aren't trying to be judgemental in any way, I know how america feels about guns, i'm just interested in knowing how many people actually own one.

I own 4 (all shotguns). A Purdey 30.5" 12 bore, two Webleys - a 12bore and a 410, and a Browning 20 bore (for Mrs.E & daughters). One of the perks of being one of the Landed Gentry!

i've fired guns ealdwita, both here & in the states, and had my kidney shot out by a webley bolt-action rifle, so I kinda know both sides to the story, so to speak!

that's what kinda got me thinking iNV, I was reading the other thread, about the 6th amendment, and it was clear how all you guys felt about the issue, and I just wondered how many OWNED one, or were just like yourself, non-owner, but pro-gun.
but I think it was more of a civil liberties deal with you lot than anything else.

I do. I live out in the country and own a few acres of wild terrain. I have my own makeshift target range set up and head there at least once a week. Late summer, the area becomes infested with rockchucks...alas, live targets in abundance.

You just reminded me of an interesting kinda funny fact i learned a few weeks ago.

When people shoot guns it relases the hormone oxytocin(the bonding/love chemical) in our brain. So in theory people might actually get attacted to their guns when they fire them lol
