Historically, the criminal use of firearms is closer to .004 per cent (4/1000 of 1%) of all firearms, not 20 per cent as you say.

Alan, what he's referring to is an offshoot of the Pareto principle and not a general statement that 20% of all guns in circulation are used in gun-crime.

My interpretation in the context of this thread is that the majority of problems are caused by a minority of the population. The same can be said about the distribution of wealth - the majority of the income earned is earned by a minority; and in true management science philosophy, the top 80% of your priorities require 20% of your time.

Except when it comes to airsoft, where it represents 20% of my total priority, 80% of my wealth and free time reading this forum. And did you know that the Sereda principal states that 75% of all statistics are made up, right on the spot?
