    Over 3 million Anti gun people belong to Everytown

    Just a simple public service announcement reminder.

    Just because we finally have a 2nd amendment President in the White House it does not mean we can relax. It is now that our voices and our help are needed more than ever. We cannot waste a day or a week.

    It appears to me that every statistic on this page is inflated, Gun Violence by the Numbers
    but this is what we are up against.

    9 Organizations Making Progress Towards Gun Control - GreatNonprofits' Blog

    Non-profit means Government funding in today's world of support groups. Will these non-profits fade on the horizon now that federal aid will likely get cut? NO

    This is a list of pro-gun rights groups. Second Amendment Stuff - National Pro-Gun Organizations Nine versus 13 is pretty good but a few of the pro groups seem more sporting/hunting. Still very important assets.


    It is estimated as 38,000 car fatalities in 2016. Estimated 15,057 gun fatalities in 2016. http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/past-tolls

    That can't be correct. Where did that come from?

    You are correct, so far 2017 on gun fatalities. Sorry. Gun Violence Archive

    Correct is Past Summary Ledgers | Gun Violence Archive or well could be correct. 15,057 gun fatalities in 2016

    The problem with numbers put out by these liberal idiots is that at the very least they include justifiable shootings in the numbers. To them it makes no difference if the perpetrator or victim gets shot when the only thing that should count is when the victim gets shot.

    I also seriously doubt that 3 million number as well.

    These number should be put into context. A listing of all other types of activities would be helpful.. As they stand, there is no perspective. Plus, in a population of 300 million I'm seeing some pretty small numbers.

    You are correct, pretty small numbers. Just trying to keep it simple. Gun kill fewer people than automobiles. By half. At least in 2016.

    Every life matters but the gun anti's claim the evil is the gun as guns kill people.....pssst. We already know all the valid responses to this.

    It would be great if you want to break the fatalities down into injuries, suicides, cripples, nonlife threatening. But all that I am concerned with are the fatalities the Anti's use to justify, rant and riot about while trying to take away our gun rights.

    I wonder where the 3 million comes from. They can barely get a million likes on Facebook. I'm thinking there is some liberal math involved here somewhere.

    I've lived in Washington almost 70 years and I've not seen the violence the media hammers out everyday only heard about it and that through the media.

    Everytown has 3M members? Sure never looks like that when they have a rally. Takes careful camera work to make the 25 people look like even a modest crowd.

    Are they counting every time someone just breezes by their website as a "member"?

    But then, facts don't matter to that crowd.

    If it weren't for Bloomy, they'd have no existence, because they'd have no money.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 229 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    We were able to catch our breath and gain some high ground Nov. 9th. That said, just look at all the hysterical liberal meltdowns taking place daily across the country. It doesn't matter if we have the law on our side; the highly charged liberal emotionalism is a factor with which we'll have to contend. We are in the right legally, bolstered by the Constitution, but the political pendulum is swinging more wildly in this past decade than at any other time in our history. We must fortify our position daily.

    Support GOA. Support the NRA (even if you have to hold your nose). Support your local chapters. Stay ever more vigilant and don't let your guard down for a second.

    I've said it before and I'll reiterate: We won the battle against Hillary which is good but the war goes on. As far ahead as I can see right now we have two years in which to operate before we might start losing seats in congress at the mid-term elections. The time to move is now.

    What I was questioning was this, "Over 3 million Anti gun people belong to every town"
