Fewer guns means more lives

People kill people with guns. That’s one of the reasons why they were invented, and that’s what they continue to do these days in America.

The best estimate according to the gun-violence archive, is that guns alone are responsible for taking 12,565 lives in the last year (2014) in this country – 628 of those lives belonged to children.

Take away the guns and more people and children live, say, 12,565 last year. Now, that sounds like pretty simple logic to me.
