American casualties of war in every war from World War I until this very day is roughly equal to the number of Americans other Americans have
killed with guns here in our own country over the last 20 years. That, again, is not "hype". What does old age and heart attacks have to do with gun
It has to do with the fact thta you and millions of others are fixated on GUNS without regard for perspective and proportion!
Before the world wars, people killed en-masse with blades, stones and sticks and bare hands. You and others like you, fed and stoked by the MSM and
"progressive" leadership, magnify what is otherwise a minimal threatr RELATIVELY SPEAKING.
If all of you can single-out guns, why can't I single-out abortion, or obesity, or hunger?
You seem to beleive that only guns cause "mass killings," when mass dying goes on all around us, every day.
Simply because they didn't die together in a school or theater or mall, you are willing to overlook and ignore the hundreds who starve to death every
day - most of them children.
Every year, millions die from otherwise common and preventable illnesses like measles, flu and malaria! Where's your outrage and hysteruia and hype
Where's the call for better building standards in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Mexico and esewhere where hundreds die from collapse, fire and
I'll repeat it again becuase you either chose to ignore it or didn't understand:
The purpose of the thread is NOT to highlight gun deaths, but the American public's exaggeration of the threat and the MSM's preying upon simple
minds who will overlook the more obvious AND PREVETABLE threats without involving individual rights, freedoms or the Constitution.,
Get a grip, step back and think about what REALLY is killing masses and CAN be prevented painlessly.
You won't or can't because you are fixated on firearms.
