And yes my point will be firearm related, I had a conversation with an aquaintance who is employed as a death investigator. A person dies in this country on average of once every 13 seconds, 24-7, every year. That figure translates to 2,358,720 every year. Lot of folks pass, yes? Let's round that to 2,600,000 Of those people, 350,000 are victims of vehicular accident. 50,000 TOTAL are victims of Homicide. 20,000 of this 50,000 are victims of FIREARM Homicide. 13,000 folks commit suicide. That leaves 2,187,000 passing from all the mundane things that get most of us in the end. So, What are your chances,,,,, 1 in 1 you will die at some point in your life. If you die in any given year, There is a 1 in 200 chance you will commit suicide. There is a 1 in 118 chance you will die from homicide by firearm. There is a 1 in 87 chance you will die a victim of homicide of any form. There is a 1 in 7.5 chance you will die in a vehicle accident. There is a 1 in 1.2 chance you will die from natural causes, a home accident, or an accident at work. There now doesn't everyone feel better knowing your chances of being murdered are very slim and better informed that you really need to start using that seatbelt and skipping work more often!
