I agree with you on how many fatal injuries there are a year from firearms, but using sources such as Wikipedia are not acceptable in most cases. Why? Well because of the fact that I could simply go on there and just change everything in a couple minutes. Wikipedia is good to find sources, but don’t use Wikipedia itself as a source. Also, your link to the Washington Post doesn’t work, so could you send another?

A survey in 2010 shows there are over 30,000 fatal injuries by firearms in the US every year. A survey in 2013 says there are over 60,000 non-fatal injuries from firearms every year in the US. Your lack of information and demand for sources has led me to find sources and prove you wrong.

U.S. right around Honduras and Mexico on a per capita basis. Much higher on a gross deaths basis (30,000 per year).

NRA or any person that legally carries a gun does not carry a gun to “shoot people dead”. In fact, we are prepared to STOP an attack on our safety. We never use deadly force when there are other options and never in anger. That is the very first lesson that every gun class teaches.
Also, the NRA is noted for its support for all people having civil rights, especially minorities and ordinary (non-rich) people.
This author needs to study the subject before making such unsupported arguments.

sources, as you ask for. thought, as you demand. your liberal vitriole is getting really old.

none of what you said is ever correct, nor shared, nor backed up.
how many times have you been suspended for abuse, clearly not enough.
shut up….
