Drama queen nation:
. . your chance of dying in a school shooting approximates that of being struck by lightning. In contrast, Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck estimates that 2.5 million Americans each year use guns for self-defense and that 400,000 of them say they would have been killed if they hadn’t been armed. That’s 400,000 a year.
Americans are so full of shit. If the pussies didn’t have their guns, the number of homicides in the country would jump from 16,000 to 416,000. Mmmkay. There would be a 16% surge in the country’s mortality. Not owning a gun would become the third leading cause of death, right behind heart disease and cancer. Right. Is it any wonder we can’t have a sensible discussion about gun control? Half the U.S. are Liza Minnellis, waving their M-16s at the rest of us.
