A recent letter to the editor called for gun control, but contained no facts just emotion. Here are some facts that support the right of our citizens to own and carry firearms:
During the 503 days between the Trayvon Martin shooting and the Zimmerman not guilty verdict, more than 10,000 black Americans were killed. Name one. That is an average of more than 21 per day.
The United States ranks third in murders throughout the world, however, if you remove Chicago, Detroit, Washington, D.C. and New Orleans, from those statistics, the United States drops to fourth from the bottom in murders throughout the world.
Three of these cities have the toughest gun control laws in the United States. All four are controlled by Democrats. You can draw factual conclusions from that data.
Support the Second Amendment. Gun control does not save lives; it allows criminals to murder with impunity when law-abiding citizens are unarmed. That is fact over fiction.
