Not a poem. But between the follow websites I calculated the following:
I calculated the rough total of firearm deaths of all types since 1981. That figure comes out to be 1,438,566 firearm deaths, roughly. The last two years however, the data of suicides on GVA is not complete. But between the two websites it is accurate.
To put that in perspective, there have been more civilian deaths from use of firearms than all our soldiers who died in wars WW1 up until now. If anyone reading this finds that number acceptable, FUCK YOU!
