"I repeat: the data that people want is not publicly available. Anyone making claims about death rates for people found "fit for work" is wrong, and displaying their ignorance. Those rates might be terrible, they might be fine. Nobody knows. But DWP could probably tell us, if someone asked them carefully and precisely for the death rates. Not the numbers. The rates. As I explain below."
Possibly the only way things will change in the gun friendly USA is if some senior members of the NRA were to lose family members in a a gun incident, but their views are so entrenched i would still have my doubts.
Its as though the wild west is still alive and kicking in the USA , and the NRA appear to want to keep it that way.
Its not just the NRA. Gun owners are reliable voters and they vote in big numbers. Upset them and they will take away a significant proportion of your vote. The anti-gun vote is flakier and not as much of a redline issue.
With respect to yesterday, it was a big story due to the nature and the imagery.
