I came across this information by accident on FaceBook. There is a link to the site at the bottom of the article.
It appears that, despite all the lies Shoebridge and his fellow blue vein trumpet players at the Greens spread, our chosen sport continues to grow at an amazing rate.
"The shooting sports is one of the safest and most popular activities in the U.S. According to a 2010 study by the National Sporting Goods Association, 44.5 million people over the age of seven regularly participate in the shooting sports (including target shooting, hunting, and muzzleloading).
This makes shooting sports more popular than the vast majority of common sports activities, including bicycle riding, bowling, jogging, fishing, basketball, soccer, and tennis. In fact, the shooting sports are twice as popular as golf (21.9 million), over three times as popular as baseball (12.5 million), and nearly 5 times as popular as football (9.3 million)."
