NRA's Goal for RED State American Justice

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, or not. How much is a handful of guns in public worth? Start here:
has more guns and gun deaths than any other developed country in the world,
The study found that the
has 88 guns per 100 people and 10 gun-related deaths per 100,000 people — more
than any of the other 27 developed countries they studied.
Japan, on the other hand for example, had only .6 guns per 100 people and .06 gun-related deaths per 100,000 people, making it the country with both the fewest guns Per capita and the fewest gun-related deaths.

If what we see is not the definition of insanity, they surely we don't know the definition of insanity.
