Everybody these days seem to live in fear of Covai-19: the whole countries are shutting down. Peopel are hording food and toilet paper.s, scared to visit their own parents. Indeed, the virus is contagious and has sickened some 100,000 and killed over 4000 so far, some 16 in the US. It shoudl be taken seriously. But let’s put it in prospective. Every year over 36,000 (mostly young) die of gun relate violence in the US ALONE! That is 100 people (mostly young) every single day. So in 4 days we have more deaths caused by guns in the US than we have in weeks of Covid attack in Italy.
If we are so concerned about unnecessary deaths, as we should be, why not treat Gun related violence as a pandemic?
