Last year marked a record-high for gun-related deaths in the U.S. in nearly four decades, according to new data released from Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention's WONDER database.
Nearly 40,000 people were killed by guns last year, according to the data.
The 39,773 recorded deaths from firearms marked an increase of more than 10,000 compared to the 28,874 deaths recorded in 1999.
I think we have definitely reached a crescendo in the gun debate. A call for restricting guns should be demanded. 40,000 - 50,000, 60,000 enough is enough......the bodies are piling up.
