the NRA and the 2nd Amendment

Today I’m going to have a rant in English, about America. I only briefly lived in San Francisco for 6 months, but it was long enough to be robbed under gunpoint.

The rest of the world don’t really have guns, here in the UK, the police don’t have guns, and surprisingly nobody gets shot.

A quick glance at numbers I got from Wikipedia states that in 2014; 10.54 people per 100,000 where killed by firearms in the USA, for a country of 318.6 million people that’s: 33,581 people got shot to death that year.

The same year (2014) in Syria, during  the greatest war tragedy of our time 17,790 civilians  was killed.

And you’re still clinging on to the 2nd Amendment???
