    I think with the buying craze, we're sort of doing that already. I think the manufacturers will be fine. But, I'm going to make some purchases soon myself anyway. At this moment, I'm saving up for a new BUG. Well, not actually at this precise moment, since I'm sitting here gabbing with you guys on this forum....

    Anyway, carry on.

    If we were to calculate the rankings based on percent of the population - Montana wins - 61.4% (Unless I missed something).
    "Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.

    West Virginia surprised me a bit.

    I wondered the same thing because no one has asked me so I think they are wrong.

    Now,that I know who tried to come up with figures,I wonder whereor where they were directed for numbers.I don't believe I can go along
    with the numbers.Maine closer to 50% ownership and this certainly doesn't have The Presidents bump.I bet all state numbers are higher.

    These were just the ARs.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    This list is underestimating by a huge amount. Crap data.

    Dang it!! We are number one in to total guns here in Texas but our percentage of population is unacceptably low. There is no reason that we shouldn't be leading in that category too. I am so disappointed. :(

    Gun Owners as % of Population (note 1), is 11 years behind the 2011 State Population (note 2).
    I would guess that in most States the gun owner percentage has risen dramatically in those 11 years.

    According to this data, Montana is the number 1 in gun owners by population percent, but states ranking 1st through 31st all have TWICE as many gun owners as Montana. Montana is great, lots of gun owners, not lots of people.
    "Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.

    Not quite. Wyoming takes the cake.

    I miss Montana. Badly.

    Give me $100K and I will do a 6-months "STUDY".

    What results do you what ?

    What, exactly, is the American Academy of Pediatrics doing with such information, and how is that relevant to pediatrics?
    What this is, exactly, is the AAP's official stance that guns in the home are dangerous and that any home with a child should not have a gun.

    How they acquire this information is by asking parents during well-baby visits. For those without kids or who are unfamiliar - with newborn kids there's a series of doctor visits recommended between birth and age 6. There are 4 regular doctor visits for the first year - they get their immunizations on schedule, height/weight/size monitored to make sure they're growing properly etc.

    One thing they also do is question parents to determine "risk factors" based on age. For instance, at or about 6 months, baby should be able to roll over and sit up unassisted. If they can't it can indicate a problem.

    Standard question by the pediatrician - first visit - are there any guns in the home?

    And this is where they are getting their numbers.

    Edit to add - whenever I've been asked this ? at the doctor, I tell them I decline to answer. But my wife...
