    • And I bet 97% of the shootings were commited by people using their constitutional right to “self-defence”, or as you say “self-defense”.


  1. Actually, 97% of the shootings are done by criminals who obtained guns illegally. Keep in mind your sources. If the stats don’t come from the FBI uniform crime report, they are likely inflated. The partisan press has an agenda. BTW it’s been reported that 93,000 people died of drug overdoses last year. That doesn’t seem to be much of a concern for the partisan press. Nor does the 44,834 suicides or the 690,882 deaths from heart disease or the 598,932 deaths from cancer. There has been a lot of news about the 345,323 deaths from COVID-19 (which is not solely covid since the vast majority have underlying causes) in 2020, but that’s as politicized as gun violence. There were approximately 20,000 gun-related deaths in the USA in 2020. That is 0.06% of the 3,358,814 deaths by all causes in the USA in 2020.
