"Armed and Disingenuous" - the USA Enjoys 90 Guns per 100 People.

If it were a Hollywood action film, a low, menacing voice would warn, "Be afraid..... be very... afraid...."

"301 million people. 270 million guns. One big mistake..."

A report by the Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International Studies found the USA to be the most heavily-armed population on earth.

According to the Reuters article, "The United States has 90 guns for every 100 citizens, making it the most heavily armed society in the world, a report released on Tuesday said."

1. And their point is?
2. Well, doh!
3. We needed a study to discover this?

I wonder how many guns they had in New Orleans?
