Americans' obsession with guns are killing us. Other countries don't have this problem, why do we insist on clinging to 19th century justice and neanderthal attitudes?
Apparently the NRA is upset because YouTube has banned videos of guns.
I say... Yay, YouTube!
Once again, the @NRA will not allow attendees to be armed in the convention center when keynotes are speaking.— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) April 27, 2018
I call on @DLoesch to forfeit this constraint during her own speaking event since she wants us to believe she’d be safer if she is armed while delivering her speech. pic.twitter.com/K6l5O63etT
A scene from the @NRA annual meeting in Dallas. 5,790 American children receive medical treatment each year for a gun-related injury; 21% of those injuries are unintentional. About 1,300 children die annually from a gun-related injury in the US. #NRAAM pic.twitter.com/6ONVhlJytG— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) May 6, 2018
The @NRA’s mean tweet of a receipt from Dallas restaurant Ellen’s that supported stronger gun laws didn’t turn out quite the way they wanted it to... Not only has Ellen’s received overwhelming support, but they’re writing a $15,000 check to @MomsDemand.https://t.co/jvEjWXR29I— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) May 8, 2018
Only 21% were ?unintentional?? Does that mean 79% were deliberate assaults?
I'm glad you brought up this issue. Some how we imagine that injuries don't matter. I don't know the figures but many of those must result in permanent disfigurement or disability. Does the center for disease control or other organization have an estimate of the cost of accidental gun injuries to the nation?
