Did you know that someone dies from the effects second-hand smoke every 23 seconds in this country?
OF COURSE YOU DIDN'T "KNOW!" I MADE THAT CRAP UP! But idiotic statements such as mine are reported as fact over and over again by a press that either is too lazy to check the numbers or too willing to run with them because they fit the right agenda. Gun control morons, date-rape scaremongers, anti-smoke Nazis, environmental dingbats and a host of other single-issue advocates simply pull such "statistics" out of thin air, throw them to a hungry press and stand back while the barracudas feed. And a lot of people actually BELIEVE this nonsense.
Think of all the children who have been poisoned by TAINTED HALLOWEEN CANDY and you'll get the picture.
Someone is killed by a handgun every 5 seconds in this country.
You can't argue with numbers such as those.
