It's time that Americans woke up, smelled the coffee and too their collective heads out of the sad. Be smart, be modern, wake up and REPEAL the 2ND AMENDMENT The United States has by far the highest rate of gun deaths (murders, suicides and accidents) among the world's 36 richest nations!! * 2,827 children and teens died as a result of gun violence in 2003 (more than the number of American fighting men killed in hostile action in Iraq from 2003 to April 2006) Americans value their constitution and the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment deals with the right to bear arms. Here is the price that ordinary Americans are paying for the privilege * 8 children a day die in murders, suicides and accidents involving guns * since John F. Kennedy was assinated more Americans have died from gunshot wounds at home than died in all the wars of the 20th century * Osama bin Laden would need at least nine twin towers like attacks each year to equal what Americans do to themselves every year with guns. * Murder rates in LA, NY and Chigago were approaching the hightest in the world (30 per 100,000) until moves were made in late 20th century to restrict access to guns to teenagers and the NRA wants these moves reversed. If Osama bin Laden had had more sense, instead of launching a terrorist attack, he would simply have provided financial backing to the NRA!
