Gun Violence in the United States

More than 1/3 of American households and almost ½ of all American males own guns.  More than 2/3 of murders are committed using guns.  A total of 32,514 Americans and 2,677 children die in this country every year from gun violence!  These numbers are unacceptable – these are real human beings, someone’s children, parents, and spouses.  Only 0.5% of guns are used for protection where the gun owner thought his life was in danger.  This demonstrates that the argument that everyone should carry a gun for protection is a fallacy.  Please speak out and let your local officials know how you feel!
