“All it takes is one good man with a gun….” – ”At Least 194 Children Have Been Shot to Death Since Newtown’

Really??? And still nothing about some degree of gun control/regulations/safety? Way to go …. <>

The Last Of The Millenniums

gun control1

‘127 of the children died from gunshots in their own homes, while dozens more died in the homes of friends, neighbors, and relatives’.

’72 of the young victims either pulled the trigger themselves or were shot dead by another kid’.

‘In those 72 cases, only 4 adults have been held criminally liable’.

‘At least 52 deaths involved a child handling a gun left unsecured’.

’60 children died at the hands of their own parents, 50 of them in homicides’.

‘The average age of the victims was 6 years old’.

‘More than two-thirds of the victims were boys, as were more than three-quarters of the kids who pulled the trigger’.

‘The problem was worst over the past year in the South, which saw at least 92 child gun deaths, followed by the Midwest (44), the West (38), and the East (20)’.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. Many humble thanks for the reblog and no…still nothing and there will be nothing.
    Right now, we Liberals/Democrats/Progressives lack the strong voice to lead us.
    Via filibuster and defunding and a disaster of the Obamacare web site roll out, Obama has been silenced.
    Until Hillary actually starts to run and run against the far right, we have no National voice.
    Kinda sucks to be us right now.
