Writing about web page http://woundedinamerica.org/
I'll just leave some interesting facts from this site:
During the 20th century more Americans were killed by gun violence within the U.S. than died from combat wounds, disease, and accidents in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnamese War, and the Gulf War combined. (National Center for Health Statistics and the Department of Veteran Affairs)
Gun violence is one of the leading causes of death for American Blacks, Hispanics, Native Indians, male youth, and white males between the ages of 15–64 years.
And also from the Indymedia article that referred me to the site:
Firearm homicide was the number one cause of death for American Black men ages 15–34 and the leading cause of death for all Black Americans 15–24 year olds.
Oh, but wait..I forgot, the "right to bear arms" trumps the lot.
The question to ask is, how many more people have to die?
