    100,000 people are shot in the USA every year!

    How many were shot by a good guy with a gun saving lives?

    The only good guys / hero's are the the people saving more & more lives of gunshot victims thereby reducing the murder rate. Gee I wonder why medical cost keep rising?

    Better check your numbers, unless you rely on Facebook for your news.

    A quick Google search tells me that in 2015 13,286 were killed and 26,819 were injured. I'm no math wiz, but that's a far cry from 100,000.

    The first is data for deaths by guns, which is included in an annual report about deaths of all types during calendar year 2009. The numbers for gun deaths is broken down into several categories:

    Suicide: 18,735 deaths
    Homicide: 11,493 deaths
    Unintentional: 554 deaths
    Legal interventions: 333 deaths
    Undetermined: 232 deaths

    Total: 31,347 deaths

    The second data set tracks non-fatal injuries by guns. According to the CDC, there were 73,505 non-fatal firearm injuries in 2010. (We will ignore an additional 13,851 non-fatal injuries from BB or pellet guns.)

    How accurate is the Facebook post?

    If you add together the gun deaths and the non-fatal gun injuries, you get 104,852 people shot in a year. That’s very close to the 1000,000 the Facebook post said.

    NO ONE is calling for the banning of ALL guns....our country is too invested in the macho image......BUT, sane folks SHOULD call for the banning of military-style, assault weapons with extensive ammo clips whose ONLY purpose is to kill as many people as possible in the shortest number of minutes.....

    All that you gun nuts are doing is FACILITATING murderous wackos' jobs for them.
