Thats a great point, it clearly shows that Guns arent the problem, people are! Technically, we allow allot of bad people into our borders and dont stop the homegrown ones we have from breeding!
Heres a fact, 27 dead caused by a single drunk driver, thats something we could worry about, your likely to be affected by drunks one way or another, I lost my Dad and my Sister 5o years later to boozing and almost died myself.
Another figure, hundreds maimed and a handful of dead from prior identified Terrorists inside our borders (we also gave them welfare).
50,000,000 ground up fetuses since R-v-W(mostly from the poor and minorities) and hundreds of millions to come isnt scary to us?
How about 10,000+ of innocent people dead and injured every year from a failed war on drugs?
180,000 Hospital caused deaths yearly isnt a real concern but 100,000,000 to 1 odds of being shot in a public school is?
When will we account for 150,000 of our dead and wounded children from 3 wars we won but never left?
Guns Per Capita is all a distraction from historical time tested facts, guns dont kill people, people kill people!
