Addendum for August 12, 2013

If today is typical, some 277 Americans will be shot by a gun. And 84 of those who are shot will die.

The story will repeat itself tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that, and on and on and on.

Help stop this slaughter. Please call, write, email, or FAX your representatives in Washington, D.C. and tell them to support common sense gun control. Do it today. And do it again next week. And do it again every week after that until they get the message.

Addendum for July 31, 2013

Several months ago, a lobbyist for an NRA chartered organization in Wisconsin said gun-rights proponents needed only to wait-out the “Connecticut effect” before they could once again start passing laws to loosen restrictions on guns.

The lobbyist predicted we would soon forget what happened at Sandy Hook, and that those who want common-sense gun laws would eventually lose interest and fade away. Then the NRA would once again have our elected representatives all to themselves, just the way they like it.

We need to let the NRA know that this time is different. We are not going away. We won’t forget Sandy Hook, or Aurora, or Columbine, or Virginia Tech, or Tucson, or the 100,000 Americans who are either killed or wounded by guns each year.

You can help. Call, write, email, or FAX your representatives in Washington, D.C. and tell them to support common sense gun controls. Do it today. And do it again next week. And then every week after that until they get the message.

Addendum for July 17, 2013

Yesterday, via email, I received a newsletter from the National Rifle Association (NRA) called the “NRA ARMED CITIZEN -- True stories of your right to self-defense in action.” The newsletter reported 19 incidents of individuals successfully using guns either at home or their place of business to thwart intruders or burglars. The first of the incidents was dated June 3, 2013; the last one was dated July 9, 2013 -- a period of 36 days.

However, the NRA ARMED CITIZEN didn’t mention that during the same 36-day period, based on average numbers, 3,024 Americans were killed by a gun, and another 6,948 were wounded by one. So for each “good” use of a gun during those 36 days, there were 524 “bad” uses of a gun. Granted, the NRA might not have reported or been aware all the “true stories of self-defense in action” that occurred during that 36-day period, but I doubt they missed 505 of them in order for the “good” numbers to at least equal the “bad” ones.

The newsletter also failed to mention that if there is a gun in a home, it is 22 times more likely to be used to kill or injure a member of the gun-owner’s family (due to domestic homicide, suicide, or unintentional shooting) than to be used in self-defense.

I don’t know anyone who would go out shopping for their family and buy a product that was 524 times as likely to hurt rather than help the general population. Or 22 times more likely to hurt rather than help a family member.

Yet, when it comes to those little hand-held killing machines we call guns, too many Americans are willing to suspend rational thinking. That’s good for the NRA and other such gun-rights groups and their lobbyists. And it’s good for the gun and ammo manufactures and their well-paid executives. But it’s not so good for the 100,000 or so Americans either killed or wounded by guns every single year.

Want to help reduce this carnage? Call, write, email, or FAX your representatives in Washington, D.C. and tell them to support common sense gun control. Do it today. And do it again next week. And do it again every week after that until they get the message.
