Guns: Support more restrictive gun laws

Mass murder attacks in the three-year period between Sandy Hook Elementary in December 2012 and San Bernadino Dec. 2 totaled 93 dead and 69 wounded, all by gunfire.

The NRA states that guns don’t kill people, people kill people. The same could be said for knives, but how many mass murder victims would there have been had the perpetrator been only armed with a knife?

In 2012, murders in the U.S. totaled 12,765; 69.4 percent were by gunfire. Wake up, America and the NRA: Guns do kill people. Support more restrictive gun laws.
