So, when REALITY is factored in, around 2291 people die per year from firearms.
When TRUTH is factored in, it's 32,000+.

When TRUTH
Here's some "TRUTH" for you, right out of the U.S. LAW BOOK:

"29. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof: or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances [Amendments to the const. art. 1.[Pg. 72]

"30. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed [Amend to const. art 2] ib

- Laws of The United States of America, From The 4th Of March, 1789, To The 4th Of March, 1815, Including The Constitution Of The United States, The Old Act of Confederation, Treaties, And Many Other Valuable Ordinances And Documents; With Copious Notes And References. Arranged And Published Under The Authority Of An Act of Congress. In Five Volumes. Vol. V. Published By John Bioren And W. John Duane, Philidelphia, And R.C. Weightman, Washington City. 1815.

Do you see "militia" there? NO you do NOT. Do you see "shall NOT be infringed"? YES, you most certainly DO.

CASE CLOSED.

Good-bye, traitor-troll.

Imagine how many more would be dead if We The People didn't have the right.

"The amendment of the constitution of the United States, cited, secures "the right of the people to keep and bear arms;" nor will the constitution of the United States, or the rights of the States, or of the people, be infringed, and I am very confident not endangered, if the concurrent authority of the National Government is exercised to provide arms, establish magazines, &c. and to arm indeed the great body of the militia of the United States."

- Joseph Bloomfield, Dec. 29, 1809 letter to Colonel B. Tallmadge.[American State Papers. Class V. Military Affairs. Volume 1. DOCUMENTS LEGISLATIVE AND EXECUTIVE OF THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES FROM THE FIRST SESSION OF THE FIRST TO THE SECOND SESSION OF THE FIFTEENTH CONGRESS, INCLUSIVE: COMMENCING MARCH 3, 1789, AND ENDING MARCH 3 1819. SELECTED AND EDITED, UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF CONGRESS. BY WALTER LOWRIE Secretary of the Senate, AND MATTHEW ST, CLAIR CLARKE, Clerk of the House of Representatives. VOLUME WASHINGTON: PUBLISHED BY GALES AND SEATON 1832.](Joseph Bloomfield,(Oct. 18, 1753 – Oct. 3, 1823), was the fourth Governor of New Jersey. He was admitted to the bar in 1775 and began his law practice in Bridgeton, New Jersey. He entered the Continental Army as captain of the 3rd New Jersey Regiment on Feb. 9, 1776. He attained the rank of major on November 28, 1776, and was appointed judge advocate of the northern army. He was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine in September 1777. He resigned from the Continental Army on Oct. 28, 1778, after he was elected clerk of the New Jersey General Assembly. From 1795 to 1800 he served as Mayor of Burlington, New Jersey. At the start of the War of 1812 he was commissioned as a brigadier general in the United States Army on March 13, 1812. He served until June 15, 1815 along the Canadian border).

Imagine that! The People's Right won't be infringed if the National Government provides arms to the militia!

Disarming Realities: As Gun Sales Soar, Gun Crimes Plummet

A couple of new studies reveal the gun-control hypesters’ worst nightmare…more people are buying firearms, while firearm-related homicides and suicides are steadily diminishing. What crackpots came up with these conclusions? One set of statistics was compiled by the U.S. Department of Justice. The other was reported by the Pew Research Center.

According to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. gun-related homicides dropped 39 percent over the course of 18 years, from 18,253 during 1993, to 11,101 in 2011. During the same period, non-fatal firearm crimes decreased even more, a whopping 69 percent. The majority of those declines in both categories occurred during the first 10 years of that time frame. Firearm homicides declined from 1993 to 1999, rose through 2006, and then declined again through 2011. Non-fatal firearm violence declined from 1993 through 2004, then fluctuated in the mid-to-late 2000s.

And where did the bad people who did the shooting get most of their guns? Were those gun show “loopholes” responsible? Nope....

"...But great complaint is made of the war preparations of South Carolina. Can any one be serious in saying that there is no cause for this? A State surrounded by military force denied the right to prepare to meet it? Take care, Mr. Speaker this is alarming doctrine to the States! In vain the constitution allows the privilege to the citizen to bear arms for his protection, if, when he rubs up his musket and furnishes it with a fiint, he runs the risk of becoming a traitor! Sir, preparation is no force; as well may you tell me that the gentleman who sits before me with his sword cane, and which, no doubt, he carries for his honest defence, is obliged to run it through the body of the first man he meets, because he has thought proper to be ready for the assaults of either insolence or avarice. I well remember, sir, my own State had once to make warlike preparation against the usurpations of this same Government, and I should like to see the man who would dare to say she meant any thing more than the lawful defence of her undoubted rights. Against this Union she never meditated the slightest movement; but against the unconstitutional acts ot its Government, she did plant herself upon her arms, and hurled defiance in the very teeth of your usurping laws. What Georgia has done in good faith against the designs of arbitrary power, I am willing to accord to other States, without imputing bad motives to the act."

-[Judge] Augustin S. Clayton, Feb. 27, 1833.[REGISTER OF DEBATES IN CONGRESS, COMPRISING THE LEADING DEBATES AND INCIDENTS OF THE SECOND SESSION OF THE TWENTY-SECOND CONGRESS: TOGETHER WITH AN APPENDIX, CONTAINING IMPORTANT STATE PAPERS AND PUBLIC DOCUMENTS, AND THE LAWS, OF A PUBLIC NATURE, ENACTED DURING THE SESSION: WITH A COPIOUS INDEX TO THE WHOLE. VOLUME IX. WASHINGTON: PRINTED AND PUBLISHED BY GALES AND SEATON. 1833. Pg. 1834](Judge Augustin S. Clayton, served in both the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and then a representative of Georgia in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1831–1835).

And had not the demonRats interfered with our rights, that number would have been SUBSTANTIALLY less.

They don't.

People who graduate from sixth grade know the difference between a fetus the size of a lima bean and a baby.

You antiabortionists know, of course: you are just liars.

You don't want an abortion, Dongliqueur, don't have one.

We both know you aren't prolife.

"Right to bear Arms.

"The right of self defence is a natural right, which legislation should aid rather than supersede. By some it is thought that in a well-regulated community individuals should be altogether debarred from what is called "taking the law into their own hands," and that they should in every case, look to the public authorities for protection from injury. It is said that social order is best maintained by the enforcement of such a principle. A standing army is upheld, in order to protect the community from foreign aggression; a police force is maintained, in order to protect individuals from private wrong; and it is argued that the agency of these forces supersedes the necessity of individual effort.

"Undoubtedly the maintenance of social order is an object of paramount importance; but social order itself may be purchased at too dear a rate, if it can only be upheld by extinguishing manly virtues in a population. During the middle ages scenes of violence were of much more frequent occurrence than in modern days, and great evil arose from those breaches of social order; but it cannot be denied that the energies of individual character were by these very disorders developed, in a manner almost unknown to the present generation.

"The right to bear arms is one of those fundamental rights upon which the liberties of a free people rests...."
