   ‎9/11, on which 2,623 Americans died, lead to America's invasion of two countries, and militarty operations in a handful of others. Combat soldiers are fighting in Afghanistan today.

   In the past decade since 9/11, however, over 300,000 Americans have been killed and over 650,000 injured by firearms and yet Americans still refuse to do anything about it. Instead of much needed restrictions on concealed weapons, extended clips, assault weapons, and gun shows, we get "right to carry" and "stand your ground" laws that have only served to make neighborhoods more dangerous. This uniquely American brand of insanity needs to be cured.
