Putting out a bullshit statistic like "guns in the home make you more likely to be shot and killed" is not going to help you win the "we need more gun control" argument.

There are 100 million gun owners in this country, compare that to 33 thousand gun deaths, the numbers don't
add up. You can't win yourself #guncontrol by tricking people with made up stats when they can do basic math. A firearm and firearm training is more helpful to a person survival if ever face with a violent attacker. Simply just owning won't protect you, that's just the truth.
#guncontrol aims to disarm people through fear mongering and straight up manipulation. Telling someone they are likely to be killed or shot because the have a gun in the home, is a form of using fear to push for gun control.
If you don't want to own a firearm for any reason, that's okay. Owning one is not for everyone and I recognize that. Self defense is ugly and it's a horrible thing to have live with if you have take a life because of it. It can give you some severe PTSD.
However it's better to have to live with that for some people than to not be living at all. People who choose to own, carry and train regularly with a firearm have made the decision to take all possible outcomes.
At the end of the day, we should be honest about gun ownership in this country. Truth is, we aren't less safe with guns in the house if we practice the rules of gun safety. People who are uneducated of firearms or have a negative view them, will push a bais stat untrue.
We need to as gun owners need to continue to educate the masses of truth about firearms ownership in this country. Push for current gun laws to be enforce and not give the government too much power over our lives. Educate new gun owners about gun safety.
We will stand tall. We will stay United. We shall fight until our last breath.
