Fewer guns mean fewer killings. We want a handgun ban. [View all]

Itís sunday, so itís a good time to ask again:

Why havenít we banned handguns and other guns designed to kill people?

Despite the chaff the right loves to throw in the air*, it is very clear that fewer guns in a society means fewer gun crimes. Kids in cities like Chicago, DC and NYC get killed regularly because of handguns. If you donít live in those cities, itís hard to relate ó but handguns get people killed in cities.

In 2018 letís commit to getting guns off our streets. Support a #handgunban.

Happy new year!


[*] if you havenít seen it, watch Merchants of Doubt. It describes the tobacco lobby, but the techniques tobacco used are now being used to sow doubt about gun crime. Donít get distracted. Fewer guns means fewer deaths. Itís widely agreed upon by serious people and has been shown across societies.
