On Facebook I'm subscribed to group called, "Moms Demand Action", that was started by several mothers whose children were killed at the Sandyhook shooting
I think a lot of people really don't understand the depth of the problem.
No it wasn't. It was started by Shannon watts, a Michael Bloomberg shill who lives about 20 minutes from me. The last part of your quote is absolutely correct.
Gun violence has been dropping steadily for 30 years. While mass shooting like sandy hook are horrific, they are statistical outliers. More people are killed by hammers and FALLING DOWN every year than with every type of rifle combined.
Where is the real violence? Look to places like Chicago- where dozens of people get shot every weekend. And who are the people getting shot and doing the shooting? Dope dealers, dope heads and gangbangers. But rather than address the issues facing those communities, the blame gets placed on Indiana gun laws. But what I don't get is that despite the enormous number of firearms in Indiana, the only places with Chicago level crime problems are...you guessed it, the counties adjacent to Chicago like Lake county (Gary, Hammond, east Chicago)
