Our Descent Into Hell

Including yesterday’s murders at a Sikh temple in Milwaukee but not counting the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, around 620 of our people have died in mass killings or massacres in the last thirty years; around 810 have been injured.  The means used by most killers have been handguns and assault rifles.

The dead include people from all walks of life, teachers, ministers, police officers, first responders, children, and even babies.

When you add in the September 11th  attacks those numbers rise to almost 3,600 dead and 7,100 injured.

When will this madness end?
