And how many would be killed each day if the AWB goes through? 34.

Whether it be through the greed of government largess or the stupidity of "feel good" gun bans, we are truly screwed as a country.

Does this include suicides?

So 12,410 deaths per year...

Lets compare shall we..

There are approximately 250,000 deaths in the U.S each year related to hospitals and doctors per Dr J Mercola's book.

12,000 from unnecessary surgery
7,000 due to Medication errors
80,000 from infections contracted at the hospital
106,000 due to the negative effects of medication
20,000 due to "other" Errors

There were 32,788 traffic fatalities in 2011 per the Dept of transportation

There were 36,909 suicides (which may or may not include your gun fatalities)

So owning a gun is safer than driving or going to the hospital it looks like...

Guns and cars have long been among the leading causes of non-medical deaths in the U.S. By 2015, firearm fatalities will probably exceed traffic fatalities for the first time, based on data compiled by Bloomberg.



I'm just posting what is in the news...

Meanwhile over 4000 unborn children are murdered every day in this country.
