Pennslyvania consists of Pittsburgh and Philly. The Pocanos are outside my understanding of this state.

I think you have to say Keystone and Nittany Lions in order to capture everything. Not sure. Don't really care to verify.

There's a proposed bill that would require every adult in a household with a firearm to undergo psychological screening. I think the back of the envelope math would mean psychologists would have a decade long backlog to get through. Do congress critters get elected based on inability to do basic math?

See: inability of British parliament to accurately identify the likelihood of getting two 'heads' in a row on a coin flip.

Maybe we should invest more in evaluators and regular, fully reimbursed treatment of mental illness. But no, no, let's vote against this, your point makes sense...

There are ~72M gun owners in the US. That's owners, not adult household co-residents of owners. There are ~190k psychologists in the US (not sure if that is licensed or not) with a highly not-beneficial distribution:

That bill, while well intentioned, is impossible to implement.

overlay that with gun owners, bc what that psych map shows me is population density (more or less). Then let's factor in how treatment is paid for and I'm still thinking you're right... "too complicated."

the yahoo map seems to support my point (it's population), while the % map makes me wonder what I'm missing about Hawaii? 45%?

So, 30-06 has gone up like 6x since I last bought it. Are people buying a lot of 30-06? Are manufacturers just switching over to 5.56 and handgun cartridges?

Are boomers buying up all the 30-06 that they can for their hunting rifles and Garands?

This is the cartridge your uncle bought like 2 boxes a year to zero in his hunting rifle before deer season. You just don't shoot much of this unless you're doing competitons, in which it is a poor choice.

“Yesterday was a really bad day for him and this is what he did.”

What a stupid thing to say.
