The U.S. has Gone F&*%ing Mad

While I agree with you that as your chart shows, terrorism is not the most likely way someone will get killed in the US, I need to remind you that there was a person behind each of those 300,000 deaths that pulled the trigger.

On your other point, I agree that Apple should stand their ground. If the government can build a huge NSA data center to collect all the data from everybody’s phone, they ought to be able to invest in some decent encryption cracking tools.

And finally, while I agree that all deaths are tragic, and certainly gun related deaths are some of the worst, I would contend that your photo of all those guns being destroyed in response to a group of people being killed by a single gunman, probably had little or no effect on the death rate related to guns. Good people may be convinced to give up their guns, but bad people won’t. And always remember that refusing to give up our guns doesn’t mean we are bad people, it means we want to be able to protect ourselves from bad people with guns.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
