Strong Uniform National Gun Control

Posted on the 16 November 2011 by Mikeb302000
Sunny Jane wrote a wonderful and comprehensive post a few months ago on Political Gates. It's popularity can be judged by the over-500 comments it generated.  She asked the question,

Can America Survive Without a Strong Uniform National Gun Control Law?

The answer for me is simple. No, not if by "surviving" you mean growing and flourishing once again and reversing the trends of self-destruction that have made us the laughing stock of the world.
Statistically Speaking…
American soldiers killed (yearly average) in the Viet Nam war: 5,820
American soldiers killed in the Iraq war to date: 4,700American soldiers killed in the Afghanistan war to date: 1,398People killed in the three terrorist attacks on America, 9/11/01: 3,497Americans killed by guns in 2007 (latest statistic from the CDC): 31,224*
What's your opinion? Are those some shocking and disgraceful stats, or what?
