I coined a phrase…
“People will buy what they want. If they cannot buy it legally, they will buy it illegally. If they cannot buy it illegally, then they will make it themselves.”
Hillbilly, there’s way more than 100 million firearms in the US. I don’t have an accurate number – nobody does – but 100 million seems a bit low. And anyone with even rudimentary machine shop skills can make a serviceable firearm if they had to. It need not be pretty or refined to work and be effective.
The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
