As of today, January 9, 2022

there have been 986 gun deaths and 720 gun injuries for a total of 1,706 people who have been personally touched by guns. Not counting the families that will carry the burden of loss and damage . . .

There have been 110 children under the age of 18 killed or injured.

There were 29 unintentional shootings.

13 mass shootings.

There have been 15 defensive gun uses. That works out to .87% of shootings being good guys with guns.

I am told repeatedly that we must have guns to defend ourselves. I'm sure that very soon that .87% will grow to some number large enough to justify the others.
