Just a small sample of statistic’s from a recent NDN article:
1. Four of 10 people rushed to Florida’s emergency rooms with non-fatal gun shot injuries were accidental.
2. In the last three years Florida has doubled the national average of accidental shootings. The Orlando area is even worse.
3. Florida’s hospitals and emergency rooms had more than $57 million in charges for its accidental shootings last year with an average of $85,000 per patient admitted. That’s only for those who survived the shooting and only the ones that were accidental.
4. So who pays the hospital bill for these shootings? For the bills that are actually paid, Government services paid 50% of them, and that’s only the hospital bills.
More guns mean more shootings, more killings, and we all pay for it. We need less guns, more gun control, less of the politicians who put us in harms way just to get money for re-election.
