Virginia is the WORST place to speed, I mean drive. Cops everywhere.
One of the few things you have said that I agree with. In some places, you don't dare go more than 5mph over the limit. But in most places, the rule of "9 you're fine, 10 you're mine" applies. Meaning you are usually OK if you stay below 9mph over the limit, but if you go 10mph over, you will get nailed.

Does it matter if it is over 300 million or 400 million, the point I am making is that the officers that have to attend a call out should take their time getting there because the gun owners reckon they are not needed, and the cops would be committing suicide knowing every idiot in America has a gun, is that not so?

You need to use a little common sense. You're thinking,math wise, that's it one gun per person. Hell, some people dont own a gun, some own one, I have more guns then you have fingers, toes, and teeth; some people own a hell of alot more then that.
There's the answer to your math problem.

Thats true, but dont you find it ironic that obama, whom hates guns and our second admendment, has done more for gun ownership then any other president before him? LMAO----At least he did something right, even if it was accidental.
