Yer typical anti-gun screed. I read the whole article and they didn't even mention thoughts and prayers!

More than 45,000 Americans died in gun-related incidents as the pandemic spread in the United States ... But more than half of gun deaths were suicides,

Black men aged 15 to 34 were more than 20 times more likely to be killed with a gun than white men of the same age.

More often then not, these black men aged 15 to 34 are criminals, that are shooting at each other and killing each other.  They are doing most all of the car jacking, muggings, looting, home invasions, and killing innocent people.

That being said, it doesn't mean they don't need thoughts and prayers, but that is highly unlikely from the NY Times.  Most all of them are not Christians.

Can never figure out if it's satire, sarcasm or you're just being ... contraire.

interesting actually ... The headlines have been all about violence and racial discrepancies, while more people continue to die each year by suicide via guns!

At least so far, this was 2020.

19,350 gun homicides in 2020

Gun suicides 24,245 in 2020.

That's Dee. In the olden days, she spoke her mind as far as anyone knew or cared.

Adding at least 8 make that 10* more to the count. Would 8 make that 10* Hail Marys on the rosary be appropriate? 

It's a black neighborhood if that makes a difference.

*While I was composing my witty comments, the number of casualties changed from 8 to 10.  I don't know, 10 Hail Marys seems excessive ?
