My fellow Americans, we have exceeded parity! There are now 11 guns in private hands in this country for every 10 Americans!
And all because of Obama. Every time he starts talking about "common sense gun control" gun sales go up another notch. Ammo.com declares Obama to be the greatest gun salesman in America, and I think they have a point.
(Granted, the Obama Administration also botched up a lot of the core components of several important cancer medications and nearly lead to a critical shortage there, as well. But the media couldn't bring themselves to ever write those stories honestly.)

The graphic I linked to says,
More than 20% of firearm owners have purchased their first firearm within the last five years.
There are certainly a lot of people yet who don't own guns, but the image of the lone crazy who owns an entire arsenal is left-wing propaganda. (Yeah, there are a few such people but they don't own the lion's share of firearms in private hands.)
Gun ownership is mainstream and always has been.These sales figures are real, and politicians know about them. It's people voting with their wallets, to the tune of several hundred dollars each, and that's a pretty heart-felt vote. And the longer it goes on, the louder it speaks. Tens of millions of people are making very clear they don't want to lose their Second Amendment rights, not by demonstrating in the streets, but by quietly visiting gun stores and spending money there.

...and now she's encouraging him to pick up something a bit more appropriate for protection.

The polling figures for gun ownership are undoubtedly on the low side, and I'm pretty sure the figures for how many guns are owned on average are substantially low, too.
