Guns save more lives than take them.

Okay, here is the deal. I'm sick and tired of people saying that guns are evil, scary, not needed, bla bla bla. And that they kill people, so they should be banned, and screw the Constitution. Well, why should they be banned when they save more people than kill? According to recent surveys, 4-6% of Americans say they have used a gun in self-defense in the past five years. That is about 18,000,000 people, 3,600,000 per year (Hoover Insitution). The annual death rate by gun use is 11,700. So in the past five years, 58,500 have died (CDC)! That is a huge gap between the two numbers. Tell me, why do you still want to ban guns when they save more people?! They save more people, don't they?

They do, and if they had never been invented I couldn't imagine the way things would be changed in modern times.

Side: Yes! Yes! Yes!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a startling revelation for 2015. It is projected that deaths from guns will surpass deaths from car fatalities in 2015. An estimated 33,000 Americans will lose their lives from guns as opposed to an estimated 32,000 Americans who will die in car accidents.

The gun violence in America is an American Shame!
