Gun deaths in America

I haven’t watched This Week on ABC on Sunday morning in quite a while. If I remember correctly, they had a roll call honoring American dead in Iraq each week listing those who died in a seven-day period. The number of fallen usually numbered between 20 and 30. Just imagine if the daily network news were required to list the names and ages of the 100 or so American who die each day here in the peaceful USA. Quite a contrast with war-torn Iraq or Afghanistan. Probably safer to be an American over there than here in the US. Please think about it.
