HOUSTON - APRIL 16: "Happiness is a warm Gun".
Scenes at the National Rifle Association's (NRA) Annual Meeting April 16, 2005 in Houston, Texas. 'Happiness is a warm gun' was the consensus at the annual NRA convention in Houston, where thousands of pistol packers swapped notes on concealed weapons, took aim at their enemies in France and at the U.N., and basked in the glow of political victory. With the number of privately owned firearms in the U.S well over 200 million, including upwards of 65-70 million handguns the debate of the right to bear arms only intensifies. The number of handguns rises by approximately 4.5 million annually. (Photo by Charles Ommanney/Getty Images)
