In the last day and a half…
Two firefighters were shot and killed responding to a fire in West Webster, NY.
A 30-year-old man was shot and killed in a bar in Bellevue, WA.
A 48-year-old man was shot and killed in York, PA.
A man was shot and killed in Placentia, CA.
A man was found shot and killed in a car in Washington, DC.
An 18-year-old woman was shot and killed by her friend who was “recklessly playing” with a gun in West Dallas, TX.
A teenager was shot and killed after a restaurant fight in Poughkeepsie, NY.
The NRA would have you believe these people would all still be alive if they, too, were armed.
Because the only solution is more guns.
So more money flows to gun manufacturers.
And the NRA.
And more people are left dead.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
