    I shot .22's for targets at camp as a Boy Scout. Also did the same a couple of times in college when I was a camp counselor at a summer job. I've shot off blanks in shotguns to start sailboat races, but it's been a while since my sailing association did that. I work at a big, liberal University and I can't imagine that anybody who works in my building, or any of the neighboring buildings, is packing.

    Never seen the need to kill an animal with a gun.

    What percentage of US population carries?

    There are crap-tons of guns here but most owners don't carry.

    350 mill US Pop
    18 million concealed carry permits. ( Google)
    16 states allow open carry/ no permit.

    So, maybe, the 10 percent of killers shot and stopped by citizens relates to the percentage of citizens armed in public?

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    So, all of this carry crap pushed by Republicans is catering to a very small minority if the population?

    18 million concealed carry permits. ( Google)--Breakaway

    That's 9% or more of the US adult population for concealed carry alone, and doesn't include legal open carry.

    8.6% - 209,000,000 over 18. So - well under 10% - IOW a minority

    It’s not 10% Kevin, it’s 10.
