Today in guns: Every picture tells a story

From the New York Times a look at gun homicides around the world.

Canadian Broadcasting rounded up some gun stats — 330 mass shootings in 2015, 270 million in guns in the U.S., more than one for every adult (and that is a 2007 figure, before Obama panic set off a boom in gun purchases.)

Feel safer? If not, Walmart most gun retailers can put you in a nice AR-15. I was reminded that my original use of Walmart was in error because the chain stopped selling AR-15s last August. It once accounted for 13 percent of AR-15 sales nationwide.
