The Right To Bear Arms

I drew this about a year and a half ago...

It was an idea that popped into my head that I felt I just had to get down on paper. Unfortunately this was just prior to my current obsession with traditional inking, so it doesn't quite have that vintage comic look that I was after. Also unfortunately, I recently saw an episode of Family Guy in which a similar "Bear arms" gag reared it's ugly head. Arrrgh! So just for the record, I made this, before I saw that.

The vague statistic in my comic strip is based on something I read about actual gun ownership in a Bill Bryson book. (Most likely "Notes from a Big Country" ...though I read it about ten years ago, if I could have been bothered to look up the actual passage which mentions the statistic as a percentage; I may have used it.)
