Deadlier than 9/11

On Sept. 11, 2011, 2,977 victims died during an attack on our soil, and life in America is forever changed.

Since then, to combat this continuing threat to our safety, the federal government has spent countless billions of dollars, expended untold man-hours of effort, created numerous new federal agencies and passed many bills into law, some invasive of our civil rights.

In the past year alone, 10 times that number of Americans are shot to death by others or themselves and Congress does nothing.

Shame on them and any other American who still believes in the unregulated, uncontrolled right to bear arms.
