    Number of AR/AK style firearms in civilian hands?

    Is there anyway to get a relatively accurate count of the number of AR and AK style firearms in civilian hands?

    Showing how many of these are NOT used in crimes could be useful...

    To my knowledge, crime stats aren't filterable by weapon type, beyond the pistol vs rifle distinction. Even if we had the full numbers on the one side of the equation, we'd still be missing the numbers from the other side of it.

    Doesn't matter to the press, the sheep, the politicians that 1 guy may have killed two people (and himself for 3 total) with an AR-15 and hundreds of thousands of AR-15 owners killed nobody on that same day, or previous day, etc. All it takes is ONE for anything to get someone up in arms (no pun intended) about anything. If one person is offended, we accomodate them and ignore the rest of the thousands/millions (depending on what it is). If one person does something evil then the tool and all who use it are evil. Not logical but purely emotional. Not much you can do about emotional responses and people's desire to THINK that they are safe when they really are not.
