MichaelWeston Posted November 3, 2014 Report Share Posted November 3, 2014 I know we are freaked out by Ebola, but Guns are the real epidemic in America. 83 people die a day from gun violence. One single day. And this was 20 months ago. "If Americans misbehaved on Jan. 15, 2013, as they typically do, then there were 30 gun-related murders and 162 people wounded by firearms in the country, based on the most recent figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On top of that, another 53 people kill themselves with a firearm each day, according to the CDC." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/16/murders-shootings-and-gun-sales-per-day_n_2488664.html If we are going to freak out about things like Ebola, shouldn't we start worrying more about gun deaths? http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/10/25/the-fear-about-things-that-won-t-kill-us-is-killing-us.html http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mike-weisser/guns-nra-doctors_b_5939384.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
