Thank God for Colombia

Much has been said about guns of late. Below are gun deaths per million for the identified countries:

* Japan-0.7

* Azerbjian-0.7

* South Korea-1.3

* United Kingdom -2.5

* Spain- 6.3

* Australia-10.5

* Germany-11.0

* Italy-12.8

* U.S.-102.0

* Colombia-111.3

Like Colombia, the U.S. is unable to protect its citizen or “ensure domestic tranquility.” In the U.S. that’s primarily due to the fact that the NRA and a majority of southern and western voters ignore the pain and anguish of their fellow citizens.

If you ignore the suffering of others does that make you ignorant?
