    The more guns you own the more likely you are to be subject to angry outbursts that you cannot control.

    This conclusion about Americans and their guns comes from a study published this week in the journal Behavioral Sciences. Researchers found that some 9 percent of people in the United States have both guns and significant anger issues.

    “The new research also indicates that the 310 million firearms estimated to be in private hands in the United States are disproportionately owned by people who are prone to angry, impulsive behavior and have a potentially dangerous habit of keeping their guns close at hand,” the Los Angeles Times reports. “That’s because people owning six or more guns were more likely to fall into both of these categories than people who owned a single gun.”

    I find technical people the least likely to have those outbursts and they typically own and use and build for appreciation of all that goes into guns, not just what they do, but how.
