Gun rights/gun wrongs

Assault weapons don't kill, unarmed people do.

Gun rights are guaranteed by the Second Amendment while gun wrongs are guaranteed by the NRA. 30,000+ Americans die every year while far fewer die annually by acts of terrorism and our wars against terrorism. Why do we sacrifice so many lives to prevent random acts of terror? Partly because gun sales and wars are so profitable for some and partly because we don’t value the people who die. We put a higher value on the unborn than we do on the living. There is also the fear factor: fear of change, fear of the unknown and the pseudo fear of our own government whipped up for profit by the fear mongers on the right.
