Gun Violence Archive 2016
The subject of gun violence has largely slipped into the back pages (ho hum) with the media fixated on all things Trump. Anyway, I thought I would share some gun statistics for 2016 that the gun cult can be proud of. The above website doesn't get much publicity so I give it a plug. Here are some gun stats from them just for 2016 up to Christmas day:
56,528 incidents of gun violence in America
14,624 deaths by gun violence (excludes 20,000 suicides by guns)
29,893 injuries by guns
377 mass shootings (more than 4 people shot and/or injured) in 2016. That's more than one a day.
2,108 accidental shootings
Merry Christmas and have a prosperous and safe New Year. Don't become one of the victims of gun violence in 2017.
