How many guns have you seen in the last 48 hours? [View all]

Last edited Sat Jan 19, 2013, 02:01 PM - Edit history (2)

Visually seen. Doesn't matter if you handled it or not. Only privately owned firearms please. Don't include firearms carried by military or law enforcement personnel.

I am interested in peoples daily contact or interaction with firearms. Hunting and/or any form of carry, display cases, gun shops or on the shelf at the local Walmart. How many did you see?

Also, if you have the time, I am interested in how you came to see a privately owned firearm. Was it on a rack in a truck? Openly carried? Left in the bathroom? Did you catch your spouse fondling their pistol? Was your neighbor showing off? At a friends house? Scary/dumb incidents welcomed along with the normal run of the mill.

on edit: I expect this will track roughly with the level of gun ownership in the US- about 50% of households with a gun.
Just Facts - Gun Control on edit: warning - the link is to a self-proclaimed RW/libertarian site - I am just looking at the firearms data

on edit: ok - looks more like a a 30%/70% split with fewer actually having seen a firearm. Possibly 10-15% with one in the home locked away out of sight?
