1. Question re gun murder stats

 

What percent of these gun murders are committed with illegal guns? What percent is attributed to gang violence and drugs? What percent is committed by NRA members?

8. You're still here, huh? That's your third post...I'm sure you didn't just get off an NRA conference

5. That is a deceptive chart w/o 9/11 deaths

It should be done right first, and the impact will be the same.
