What’s really unseemly is the number of medal of honor winners, 20! .
Silence has a price for some it would seem.
I’ve seen a lie on German TV. The ZDF said in the news 2 days ago that 30.000 people die through bullets every year in the United States. It was no mistake by the presenter as the graphic behind showed this figure too. This is about 3 times the real number shown on.
Why do they need to show wrong data? Maybe they want to change their gun law, too.
I think that figure is correct, but about 2/3 of those are suicides. Lefties make people depressed – and they kill themselves.
They include those shot by police,as well.
They also said (including graphic) that there was more than 70 mass shooting. The most I found was 7 for last year.
I understand that the FBI talks about mass shooting when 4 or more people are killed.
Maybe 70 MASSachusetts Shootings. 😉
“Of the 30,470 firearm-related deaths in the United States in 2010, 19,392 (63.6%) were suicide deaths, and 11,078 (36.4%) homicide deaths.”
Homicide includes “justified homicides” from police and civilian sharp shooters.
