Terrible, tragic and terrifying gun statistics


Since 1968 there have been 1,516,863 gun-related deaths on U.S. territory. Since the founding of our country there have been 1,396,733 war deaths. The latter includes lives lost in the Revolutionary War, the Mexican war, the Civil war (Union and Confederate), the Spanish American war, the First World war, the Second World war, the Korean war, the Vietnam war, the Gulf war, the Afghanistan war, the Iraq war, as well as other conflicts including in Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, Somalia and Haiti.

Folks, that's 120,130 more deaths by guns in the United States since just 1968, compared to dating all the way back to the Revolutionary war in 1775 for the war deaths. This is horrendous and if the American public can't understand that, then it has completely lost its ability to come to reasonable conclusions.
