Tape of Guiliani saying that 86 to 88 percent of guns sold in the United States should not be sold

Here is a video tape of Rudy Guiliani while he was mayor saying that gun makers "are producing 6 to 7 times more guns than the legal market would demand and therefore they would have to know that they are supplying an illegal market." He initially says that this number is 3 to 4 times more guns than the legal market would demand, but changes it to the higher number. In any case, it is not a big difference. 3 to 4 times means 75 to 80 percent of guns shouldn't be sold. 6 to 7 times means that 85.7 to 87.5 percent of guns shouldn't be sold.

Thanks to Jason Megill for sending me this link.

NY City needed a fascist like Rudy. He made the taxis stop blowing their horns and taking tourists to NJ on their way from JFK to Manhattan.

America does not need him.

His comments are ludicrous on their face.

The logical corollary to a statement that manufactures are producing "four times" the guns needed for the legal market is that 75% of guns manufactured are for the illegal market. Not even the Brady Center, in their wildest dreams, has ever claimed 75% of guns are used unlawfully or in the illegal market.

I received a request for $'s from Guiliani's campaign. I believe I will reply saying that Guiliani will never get my $'s because he did not promote legal ownership of firearms, did not require creation of sufficient shooting ranges to allow at least 80% of the population to shoot their firearms on a weekly basis, and did not promote such training and recreation with firearms by responsible citizens.

What's his basis for this bogus claim? It's not economical to retool a production line each time you change models to produce a just a few of each model in the course of a year. Most makers make several year's production at a single run, and then legitimately warehouse these guns in between runs, either in their own storage or their distributors retailers...these guns are in the legitimate retail pipeline.

Ignorance or convenient misrepresentation? We don't need Giuliani in either case.

I think the headline should be:
Guiliani thinks 9 out of 10 guns should be free!

Guiliani is going to lose a lot more support than he ever thought after making these statements. There is going to be a groundswell of anti Guiliani fever. I admired his actions during 9-11 but his anti gun rhetoric is truly un-American and downright scary. This is proof that the Democrats hate a large percentage of Americans of rural heritage. Unite America and send a message to this facist.

No one needs more than one gun for protection or work (police).

Any one that thinks Rudy is a friend of sportsmen or legal gun owners is simply foolish. It woyld be like thinking John Kerry was a friend of gun owners or Mayor Bloomberg or Mayor Daley or the Governor of Illinois who verges on pure socialism. Vote for Rudy and mail your firearms to the government, before they are told to come and pick them up. Republican my a**.
