Ofcourse theres more stabbings, slashings, folk kicked to death on a daily basis. Accidental deaths aswell. But going from a country of one shooting a year to 4 in one month, its heavy news for here.

Theres been 3 shootings in my area in the last 12 months, that was unheard of 2 years ago.

The guns are in the wrong hands.

I am a vet of the US Navy. From experience on the qualification ranges, most squids can't shoot for crap. I am one that can shoot very well, I was a marksman with the m16 and a sharpshooter with the 45.

Now, that I am no longer in the Nav, I am a lifetime member of the NRA and I shoot regularly. I have seen literally hundreds if not thousands of 'housewives' and 'rednecks' at the NRA range in Fairfax Virginia. Most of them are excellent shots. They practice a great deal, they shoot because they enjoy it and they use the weapon they are most comfortable with. A standing military will kick ass on militia any day. But in a PAW or a ZPAW, I would rather be with those 'housewives' and 'rednecks'.

Here's something to think about. How often do those reservists in Switerland actually practice?

Quick question, I think it's been answered before...
As a person who's not served in the military or even touched a gun, I'm curious.

What is the difference between a marksman and sharpshooter?  I know it's something to do with your hit percentage or something along those lines?  What's the grading scale there?

You'll notice they skipped dual-weiding and from the hip, also jumping left or right in slow-mo. :~) Pretty basic stuff unless your a fucktard you should be able to qual for at least marksman. Because prior to the test you've shot about +1000 rds under strict supervision. I always loved range day, come back covered in spent powder and sore fingers from loading clips! FREE AMMO !!!!!!! Man I miss that! I don't want a prom queen I just want my M-14! Ahuhghhhhh! This is US Army Qual - In the Navy we used Colt .45s and M-14s so who's the real men? Yes, I'm a dual service guy. Go ARMY! Go Navy!

i only own a shotgun but im interested in the ar-15 now since i heard about it. ive also used other guns.

my first clip i ever used in a pistle for the fist time shooting even the pistile i hit the first four things to flip and missed the fifth to release them again it was fun and great.

id say that over 80-90% of the contrys are scrude since most dont own any guns they may have bows but those u need to use to aim for the eyes a even harder target then the head and it takes forever to load and aim compared to most guns. i agree america and switz would probably have the highest survivle rate

There are an estimated 80 million gun owners in the United states with roughly 258 million firearms.

Admiral Yamamoto said in 1941 " You can not invade the mainland United States, There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass."

 Of course those were diffrent times, Schools had rimfire ranges in the basement and in was ok to keep your duck gun in your locker. Unfortunatly to many people think the can pick up a weapon with zero familiarization and operate the machine with skill and accuracy. Americans have more privately owned firearms than several country's militarys put together. But marksmenship is a perishable skill, And if you dont know how to zero that rifle you just picked up off the ground your better off throwing rocks and yelling profanity.

I LOVE the idea that other countries worry about personal gun ownership in reference to invading.  I think that plus the money we put into the military will prevent us from ever getting 'invaded'.

I'd have guns for population control.  That's probably why I don't have guns.

I shot 40 out of 40 at Fort Jackson in 1983.  Then again I got my first gun, a .22 when I was 5 and I shot lots of AR's before I went in.  If/when the end comes Ill be able to arm my neighborhood just fine.  Im trying to get my 5.56 stores up to 25,000 rounds. Ill be happy when that happens.

Keep in mind I said I was ex navy. Marines and army probably shoot a lot better than navy since we only HAD to qualify once a year. We were allowed to shoot more often but most did not. I did. I now shoot about once a month with my 22 year old son. I keep in practice as do most of the other rednecks and housewives.
