Many people own firearms for so many reasons across this country.   For protection, for hunting purposes, job requirement ect.

However, a good percentage of people also believe owning a gun increases their safety, while in fact, owning a gun increases the risk of homicide, suicide and unintentional death.

I'm not advocating for people to own or not to own guns.  What I am advocating for is that you watch this 3 minute video on the history of guns used in deaths across America.

It will make you think twice about purchasing a gun and certainly make you think about gun safety if you do own a gun.
