These killings and shootings go on endlessly. And as more and more guns are sold, guess what? More and more shootings and deaths occur.
There was some good gun safety news & legislation from around the country EXCEPT for Georgia. For some crazy reason our legislators think taking a gun to church, or a bar, or allowing them on college campus is necessary. Are we so frightened here in Georgia we can't leave the home without a gun? I pity those weak people. The country must think we're a real bunch of wimps.
For those who don't know, roughly 300,000 citizens are shot each year and 100,000 of those die from their wounds. Per the FBI, about 230,000 guns are stolen each year. Guess where they end up?
Remember to support politicians that vow to strengthen our nation's gun safety laws. Don't listen to Republicans and the NRA, more guns is NEVER the answer. This madness must stop. The time to start is now. Help out, get involved!
