And if you go to this link you can get even more detail information by visiting

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_causes_of_death_by_rate

  So I guess the most important thing I learned in researching this is Hunger and poor nutrition, directly or as an underlying cause for the fatal diseases listed the previous, causes 36 million deaths per year accounting for more than 1 death each second on average. Statistically, a child under five dies every 5 seconds on average as a direct or indirect result of poor nutrition.[8] This is 6 million children per year, more than half of all child deaths

Looking at the chart at http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a5/Causes_of_death_by_age_group_%28percent%29.png and you find firearms coming out pretty safe overall. So after reading all this, I ask you my friends to truly think for yourselves and try to figure out what is really behind the sudden great push our government and (their tightly controlled media) against all legal ownership by law abiding citizens? When is it They want to suddenly remove my 2nd amendment right and ability to defend myself and my family? I’m an avid fan of history and know well what happened in Germany when Hitler did this same shit. I in know way want to see use end up in the same mess, though in truth the way we have been raping other counties over the last 30 years is sadly pretty close to it. Maybe it would make more sense to take control of our military away from the feds, bring all our men and women home to their own states, and allow them to serve each state in a truly defensive roll only? Just think of the difference, 50 independent states, yet all equal and interacting. Just think how much easier it would be to get meaningful things done with only 50 representative, no parties, no electoral college, States holding local elections to let their one representative know where they stand, allowing that representative a clear view of how to responsibly represent those they serve. There, and end to my ‘rant’ I guess. Let’s get together as an equal caring people, call for binding local elections on this matter, and create a far better future for all of us. I would really welcome all replies pro or con, thanks. Steve Easy Whitacre
