Well. That was disturbing. To my knowledge, I do not know the person who called me Dearest Willa, said I need to learn forgiveness, and then told me to drop dead. It occurs to me that facts have power, if they evoked this response.
My facts come from the Centers for Disease Control, Bureau of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation, from reports and data bases that count people who died and how they died. That is all these sources did -- they counted. They made no policy recommendations.
I make no policy recommendations in this series, either. I am reporting their numbers. I do hope they are not useless numbers. I offer them to you to help you weigh the costs and benefits of gun ownership.
