From our friends The Brady Bunch:

One Month after the Virginia Tech Tragedy and We're Still Asking Our Officials:
"What Are YOU Going to Do about Gun Violence?"

Dear Mike,

What are YOU going to do about gun violence?
Forward this cartoon to your friends

Today marks the one-month anniversary since the tragedy at Virginia Tech.

On that day, 33 people were killed by guns, including the shooter, and since that day, approximately 2,430 more Americans have been killed with guns. And for every death, there are another two or three seriously injured.

The gun epidemic is our monthly 9/11, our weekly Katrina, a continuing Iraq war on our streets and in our schools. It is our daily Virginia Tech. Yet, we don’t focus on this threat until we get a Virginia Tech.

And then our political leaders deliberately delay, hoping that we will stop caring. But we must send them the message that we are paying attention . . . that we don't want tragedy after tragedy to happen while they do nothing.

Act now: Elected officials continue to ignore our gun violence epidemic. It's time for them to answer one question: "What are YOU going to do about gun violence?"

We're waging a campaign to ask our nation's leaders â€" the President, the Congress, presidential candidates, state officials, and local governments â€" "What are YOU going to do about it?"
Here's What You Can Do about It:

* Make a $32 donation today
* E-mail the President and Congressional leaders
* Ask the presidential candidates to take a stand
* Get involved locally: contact your local Million Mom March Chapter
* Get your local religious community involved
* Sign our petition
* View, and forward to Congress, Paul Helmke's Call to Action

Thanks for doing something about gun violence today.

Sincerely,
Your Friends at StoptheNRA.com

Uh, oh. :( It appears Sarah is on a first name basis with another GCO member. They have obviously infiltrated the ranks. :shock:

So, did you send them $32? :lol:

Where do they get their stats from? I have seen annual stats and there is no way that 2K plus americans have died from guns in a month. Or am I wrong? Anyway to find out the actual number?

Well strictly speaking, a little more than 30,000 deaths that had a gun involved (even suicide) per year divided by 12 months is 2500 deaths a month.
