To the Editor:

In the last 50 years there have been only 1,500 proven instances of voter fraud in hundreds of millions of votes cast in the U.S. In that same time period 1.5 million Americans have died from guns. There were 41,000 gun deaths in 2020 alone. The NRA and the Republican Party are not interested in your safety at church. The Republican Party does not care about school safety.

Will you be suspicious when an open-carry person shows up while you’re grocery shopping (33 dead), going to a nightclub (49 dead), going to the movies (12 dead), going to a music festival (61 dead)? Thirty-seven dead at Texas restaurants; 16 dead at Fort Hood. We are not taking away your guns, but you cannot argue the fact that your guns are killing our kids. You are not safe because this same party does not care one whit about your safety. But they do care that too many of you vote. They simply cannot tolerate that. Your state legislature is working to solve that problem.

this is laughable. You can see the biased uneducated progressive views of the author. You only have to google mass knife attacks to see that there have been multiple mass killings using knifes around the world. The reason libtards want gun control is so that you cannot challenge them when they try to take over.

Criminals DONT obey laws, You can make all the laws you want. Criminals DON'T OBEY LAWS. Guns don't kill people, evil people kill people. You cannot legislate morality.

Chicago has all the gun laws that you liberals want and they have the highest rate of homicides.

The moment I have to defend the Constitution from the government

is the moment I withdraw my consent to be governed by them!

The government wants my guns, however, after conducting a thorough background check, I have found the government to have a history of violence and aggression, and as such, find them to be unsuitable to be given or trusted with my firearms!

Hey, did you guys know there are an estimated 3,000 abortions per day? Did you know that the average yearly abortion count is over 1 MILLION? Imagine for a moment that there were 3,000 shootings per day. What do you think the backlash would be like?

You probably didn't like that paragraph above, huh? Why not? It's factually relevant, is it not? So why don't you like it? Goes against your narrative? Let's talk about the most common causes of death in the United States. You can find the top ten list online, and here's a hint, gun deaths are not on it.

The number one cause of death in the United States is Heart Disease, which accounts for roughly 600,000 dead americans every year. That's roughly 1,643 americans every day. Crazy, right?

The ACTUAL number one cause of death in the United States, however, is abortion. As I already mentioned, that's 1 million per year. Roughly 3,000 per day. Think about that. 1 million. Mind blowing number. Can you imagine if 1 million babies were murdered by guns every year? Crazy.

Where's the outrage? You know why there isn't one? Because abortions are a very lucrative business! That's something that Democrats don't mention; they make mountains of cash off of it. Way more than guns, as a matter of fact!

Next, let's talk about the fabled "Assault Rifle", which by the way, means a rifle that is select fire, as in burst or automatic. I probably shouldn't need to mention this, but said weapons have been banned in america for over 40 years. Interesting tidbit as well, did you know that "Assault Rifle" was a phrase coined by Adolf Hitler and was used for propaganda? It's true!

Hey, did you also know that handguns account for 80% of gun death related homocides? It's true! A fraction of that other percent is death by rifles. That's right, all this fuss about rifles accounts for less than a few percentage points of gun deaths.

Did you also know that most deaths are caused by hands, feet, knives and blunt instruments? What if I told you that all of those causes of death are by a magnitude of about 80 compared to gun deaths? Crazy right?

You want to know where I'm going with all of this? It doesn't matter. Our rights are not subject to statistics. I don't need to statistically prove that I require free speech. Nor can you take away my free speech because you can statistically prove that I don't need it. Quick question, what if we could statistically prove that people would be safer without free speech? Would you be for abolishing free speech? What if we could statistically prove that slavery would be more beneficial to society, than without it? Would you support slavery then?

The statistics are on the side of guns, hate to break that to you, but it's true. And even if it wasn't, it wouldn't matter. Our rights are not subject or predicated to statistics in any capacity.

It's called the Bill of Rights, not the Bill of Needs.

Thanks for reading!

Spot on. As a trial run why don't they try taking the guns from the real CRIMINALS. CRIMINALS will always find a way to get guns.
