Former Mayor Bloomberg passionately pleaded for mayors, moms, and millions of Americans to join his crusade – and that the number of deaths caused by guns and suicide from “illegal” guns was over 30,000 a year.
In 2012, there were approximately 34,080 deaths from motor vehicle accidents.
In 2010, there were approximately 38,329 deaths from drug overdoses.
In 2012, there were approximately 1,638,910 deaths from cancer.
Guns aren’t the problem – bad people are the problem. Sickness and disease are the problem. Moms, daughters, and strong women – do not be fooled by this crusade against “guns”. Follow your heart, and your gut – who do YOU trust to protect you and your family?
Why do you call 911 if you are in danger? It is because “good guys” with guns will come to protect you (hopefully). Are you okay with dis-arming the police, sheriffs, and the military? If they can have guns – why can’t we, as responsible adults?
CRIMINALS ARE CRIMINALS because THEY DO NOT FOLLOW THE LAW. More gun laws – specifically at the federal level – will do NOTHING to stop crime – they will only make more crime possible against people who deserve the right to protect themselves and their family. More laws are designed to dis-arm people – because there are already thousands of laws for back-ground checks and other means to “protect” you from criminals getting guns if those aren’t working – NOTHING WILL.
I plead with you to research what happens to populations when they can’t protect themselves – and remember that the more laws there are – the more criminals we create out of the people who are committing no crime.
