    It's a simple math error, the decimal should shift two places to the left!

    Since the vast majority of states have no registration this is not even close to a valid indication of firearms ownership.

    The first source cited is "Bloomberg." We all know how honest and accurate his reporting is about firearms.

    Two armed forces occupy Washington, D.C. The first is criminals and the second is the force that protects elected officials, bureaucrats, and lobbyists. The firearms of the second group are all "registered" because of the anti-2A laws of D.C. I suspect that all the firearms of the federal (which includes the local D.C. police, since it isn't a state) agencies are "registered" in D.C., which will skew the numbers since, for instance, a FBI gun located in Hawaii would show as registered in D.C.

    These D.C. armed forces do not fight each other. The criminals regularly attack each other, often resulting in death or serious injury. The other side fights among themselves with Public Relations and money, resulting in almost no deaths, serious physical injuries, and generally little fincancial loss. Both forces prey on the unarmed populace. :(

    The only place I've ever been mugged was in Washington DC during broad daylight.

    That has to be the absolute most incorrect infograph I've ever seen.
