Ok Hear me out before you knee Jerk it.
How may deaths are there from guns as opposed to other causes of death lets take a look
The preliminary number of deaths in the United States for 2011 was 2,513,171 (Tables A and 1).
Injury by firearms 32,163 (table 2)
So if we calculate the percentage firearms account for 1.2 percent of all deaths almost insignificant in comparison to oh say cars or doctors and 100s
of other causes of death before firearms. Your chances are nearly a 100 times greater of dying from a car accident or a doctor then by a gun.
In other words gun related deaths are not even in the top 100 on the list.
Then there is Britain. You are 3 times more likely to be the victim of a violent crime in Britain then America. Yet all you hear about is the ratio of
gun relate deaths vs America.. It doesn't matter it is irrelevant in the face of the facts you are still more likely to be a victim of violence there.
Are you starting to see how they manipulate you?
Sort of puts things in perspective don't it? I'd say it exposes the irrational and hysterical focus and agenda on something that poses a very tiny
risk compared to 100s of other things you can die from!
So you do not have to like guns after this but at least face facts and realize your fears of so called assault rifles or guns period are irrational.
Why do you not fear getting in a car? Or going to the doctor since they are hundreds of times more dangerous? The only answer is the media is
manipulating you on this issue and clearly distorting facts to take advantage of your sensibilities.
The recent shootings are all a tragedy but we simply have much more dangerous things to worry about. Ok so you are against guns or mean looking black
rifles that is your right but aren't you pissed that the media is manipulating you and lying to you about the facts?
