  •  Boston was horrific. (6+ / 0-)

    But not lets forget how many people die each day because of guns yet we do nothing.

    This speaks for itself:

    [Every day] there were 30 gun-related murders and 162 people wounded by firearms in the country, based on the most recent figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On top of that, another 53 people kill themselves with a firearm each day, according to the CDC.

    Breaking it down further, three people are killed by a gun per hour and almost seven people are shot every 60 minutes.

    If 83 people died and 162 were injured all in the same location, we would be rightly horrified.

    Also, I can kill you with my brain.
