  3. Let me add some estimates of my own.  Those numbers also indicate a minimum of 8,000,000 firearms in the hands of private U.S. Citizens added this year alone and a minimum total of 100,000,000 added since 1998.

    I figure that makes U.S. Citizens the largest army in the world. 

    Since I do believe in a well regulated militia, I hope they’re all spending lots of good range time.  Actually come to think of it, every shooting range I’ve gone to in the last few years has been crowded. 

    I wonder what the DHS thinks of all that?
