I’d be lying if i said i hardly get on tumblr….I’m sorry for the rare times that I update this blog. It is my second blog and I find it hard to keep up with. If you would like, you can go follow my main blog here. Sometimes I post political stuff there. I’m really sorry that I hardly come on this blog anymore. I’m not gonna give up on it just yet. As long as I have followers, I will do my best to maintain this blog.
but uh……have a bunny!
or a couple…
Until next time,
Some gun facts to ponder
Here are two interesting gun-related facts (source):
- Number of accidental gun deaths in the US per year (2009): 0.2 per 100,000.
- Number of gun-related homicides in Sweden per year (2010): 0.19 per 100,000.
Here’s two more:
- 500 children accidentally kill themselves (or a friend) with handguns each year (source).
- 68 police officers were killed by gunfire in 2011 (source).
What do we know from this? More people are killed by guns accidentally in the US per capita than are purposely murdered by guns (again, per capita) in Sweden. And children are 7 times more likely to be killed by guns than police officers.
So. How are guns keeping us safe, again?
When I heard Obama currently has a 56% approval rating:
Gun control is not the answer.
Murderers will get weapons to kill with regardless of how many laws are passed to limit such weapons. You cannot possibly pass gun control laws and protect the innocent at the same time. It’s not logical and it won’t work and will only actually make life for others more unsafe. What happened this morning is a damn tragedy and I won’t criticize Obama for shedding a few tears. But gun control is not the answer.
The U.S. needs to leave the U.N.
Ok it can’t get broken down anymore than this!! If you don’t understand this I don’t know what to tell you.
Thank you. I had to break it down into the simplest terms possible because i have to present it to my class and….well…they don’t understand political terms
