Maybe you should invest in a calculator. You were only off by a factor of 82,000<quoted text>
1000 = figure of speech, but 47 seems to be the fact. I was surprised that 47 was the number. The media makes it seem like a lot more.
47 = 1.5 people / million-people murdered each day in the United States, right?
So when ya take a town of 8,200 people like Latrobe and divide that into 1,000,000 people, that means there's a chance of murder happening in Latrobe on a daily basis (no calculator here) of about .00000015
Must be same chance ass winning the Power Ball...
Latrobe's police chief is promoting a plan to place one of his officers in Latrobe Elementary School, a reaction to the shootings of 20 students and six staff in a Connecticut elementary school in December.

0.15 per million
Brush up on those math skills a little and you just might be able to land that job at Walmart stocking shelves.

I like when all of you do my work for me.
It's cold; my fingers are frozen. Are you sure it's only 15%(that's the number you list above?) per million?
That would equal 150,000 death per million.
Now who needs the calculator???
tee hee hee

I'm not off by 82,000. I have to be off by 10 or 100, 1000, 10,000 or some number like that.
Now where is my calculator...

I checked a couple of sources too and most of the numbers were from 2008. And, I was trying to ensure that I wasn't reading stats compiled by the NRA or some other pro-gun sites, where 9/10th of the US population wasn't counted or something.
However, it does add up to 16,555 deaths per year in the USA. And, that's twice the population of Latrobe, murdered each year. And when one sees that -- yearly -- statistic, it's alarming.

Am I sexting you? with my cell phone that I can't afford? Damn...I should really stop that. But did you like the pics of me in my granny panties? I thought those were hot...

Agreed. Would certainly trust the NRA before I would trust the "regime".

Your calculations imply that you work for the regime. Faulty, at best.
