I agree: we need to get off the unworkable gun control option and make practical changes that show we value our children’s lives more than party politics.

Thank you for publishing the statistics: you are correct that the left are using total numbers not deaths per million: I’ve seen newspaper articles saying Switzerland has a far lower gun-death tool than America: Others tell us what a happy safe place Scandinavia is: the numbers do not support that view.

Others use the total gun deaths in the USA, 67% of which are suicides, to compare with other countries, when the topic of the debate is School Mass Shootings and how to reduce them.
