Terry McAuliffe has brought to my attention that we lost 93 millions Americans daily to gun violence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZzjGYyI3Dg

This is absurd that we are losing so many to gun violence, it is destroying our nation!

Press F to pay respects.

He corrected it to 93 per day when challenged ...even that was wrong since most of that number is suicides.

So somewhere between 93 and 93 million people die from gunshot wounds, mostly self-inflicted, every day. That's pretty terrible. Maybe someone should do something about all these trigger-prone depressives.

Just maybe.. we should make suicide illegal. That'll teach them.

a great man once said, "if they're going to die then they'd better do it, and decrease the surplus population"

How does unintentional injury equate to unhealthy lifestyle..? I'm confused because nowhere on that chart does it say that for a cause of death. Unintentional injury can cover a wide range of things, I understand, but I'm not getting where your reasoning for equating that to an unhealthy lifestyle is coming from.

"Man, if man you be in heart, not adamant, forbear that wicked cant until you have discovered What the surplus is, and Where it is. Will you decide what men shall live, what men shall die? It may be, that in the sight of Heaven, you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions... Oh God, to hear the Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust."

I hate guns, for movies it's ok. But why do people hurt other people.

HAHA! Someone misspoke about how many people die from a thing! That's hilarious.

So. Just curious, how many gun deaths do you find acceptable? I mean, the 93 million mark is high enough for you to ask people to press F for, but at what level do you worry?
