I don't know whether to enlighten you or ignore you.

The fact is that there are a lot of American (include Mexicans,
Canadians, Columbians, and all the other *Americans*) citizens that own
guns. There's probably more that *don't* own guns.  We're not a bunch of
rednecks with shootin' cars that only have two payments left on them.

I own several guns.  My uncle asked me once if I have more guns than I
know what to do with.  My answer?  "I know what to do with each and
every last one of them."  It isn't to gratuitously poke holes into
$random_object with a high speed projectiles either.

Guns have a purpose, and each gun in my gunsafe has a purpose.  Each one
is a tool used to accomplish a particular task.  

Your generalization sucks.  Though I don't know why I cared to write
this - since it doesn't particulary affect or impact me anyway....
