I think it should remain unknown how many people own guns and who they are and no one should know who's packing and who's not. Everyone would be more polite and people would think twice before starting trouble, stealing, carjacking etc. crime would go down.
Approximately 180 million, and only 5 million NRA members. What's wrong with this picture? If it wasn't for the NRA you wouldn't be able to own a gun. Agree with all of the NRA's policies or not, they(we) defend the 2nd ammendment.
