BTW, if you want proof this is not an epidemic and a way to confiscate guns, here’s the FBI stats on this so called “pandemic”:
67% of “homicides” are suicides and our suicide rates are lower than Japan, Iceland and France.
18% of “homicides” are justifiable or self defense-—Police, citizens, security, etc.
That leaves 15% of this bogus 33,000 number——which almost 92% is gang and drug lord violence in the strick “anti-gun” cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Camden, ACY, San Fran, LA, Oakland, Trenton, etc. That leaves about 396 murders per year via guns. Knives are 4X more as are blunt objects.
Also, we’re at 1940’s levels of “gun violence” and dropping. Enough with this BS
That leaves about 396 murders per year via guns
