    A small attachment, with no real substantive proof, doesn't convey the severity of the problem this country faces each day.

    Americans are 10 times more likely to be killed by guns than people in other developed countries, a new study finds.

    Compared to 22 other high-income nations, the United States' gun-related murder rate is 25 times higher. And, even though the United States' suicide rate is similar to other countries, the nation's gun-related suicide rate is eight times higher than other high-income countries, researchers said.
    The review of 2010 World Health Organization data also revealed that despite having a similar rate of nonlethal crimes as those countries, the United States has a much higher rate of deadly violence, mostly due to the higher rate of gun-related murders.

    The researchers also found that compared to people in the other high-income nations, Americans are seven times more likely to die from violence and six times more likely to be accidentally killed with a gun.
    Even though it has half the population of the other 22 nations combined, the United States accounted for 82 percent of all gun deaths. The United States also accounted for 90 percent of all women killed by guns, the study found. Ninety-one percent of children under 14 who died by gun violence were in the United States. And 92 percent of young people between ages 15 and 24 killed by guns were in the United States, the study found.

    The same as your point, only with documentation and facts.

    A sensible solution is needed rather than disarming law abiding, American citizens. It is high time our law makers get busy on that solution, rather than further their donors agendas.

    Absolutely !
    Except it is easier to create fear, with propaganda, to further the agenda of those corporate donors.

    I have never been big on guns but what is going on in this country today we have made the decision to buy some guns before there isn't any to be had.. My neighbor is helping us with it and we can practice shoot behind his house.. Haven't shot a gun since I was in the Navy many years ago.. We have decided on a long gun and a hand gun.. You know what we have today but tomorrow is always a question mark..
