    And how many would be killed each day if the AWB goes through? 34.

    Whether it be through the greed of government largess or the stupidity of "feel good" gun bans, we are truly screwed as a country.

    Is there a source for that 34 number?

    Where are the funerals, the news stories?

    So 12,410 deaths per year...

    Lets compare shall we..

    There are approximately 250,000 deaths in the U.S each year related to hospitals and doctors per Dr J Mercola's book.

    12,000 from unnecessary surgery
    7,000 due to Medication errors
    80,000 from infections contracted at the hospital
    106,000 due to the negative effects of medication
    20,000 due to "other" Errors

    There were 32,788 traffic fatalities in 2011 per the Dept of transportation

    There were 36,909 suicides (which may or may not include your gun fatalities)

    So owning a gun is safer than driving or going to the hospital it looks like...
