75. I don't recall seeing a Constitutional Amendment that guarantees you to be free from gun violence.

 

But there is a 2nd amendment.

"On the whole, the safety benefits of guns are far less than the harms."


If that's true, then why do cops carry guns? The Justice Dept. found that there are 1.5 million self-defense uses of guns every year. There are 12,000 firearm homicides. By my count 1.5 million is a whole lot more than 12,000.
