The numbers are what the number are

While the number of people killed by guns in the US is substantial, it really pales in comparison to the total deaths caused by an assortment of Right Wing policies. Lack of health insurance, cigarettes, contaminated food, work place hazards, childhood malnutrition, and there's more. Then we get into foreign policy, a million dead here and there from various wars & war like situations, not to mention such things as malnutrition and starvation in.... well in most parts of world to one degree or another. Then there's global warming that may kill 95% of all life if we take the Permian Extinction as a precedent. What is the point of trying to do the math in the end. It is the end after all. Do I see a pale horse?
