A smart discussion about gun violence by a former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan and of the Joint Special Operations Command and a member of the Veterans Coalition for Common Sense. Here’s a passage, check it out in its entirety in the link below.

In 2014, 33,599 Americans died from a gunshot wound. From 2001 to 2010, 119,246 Americans were murdered with guns, 18 times all American combat deaths in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

That is a national crisis. And as a combat veteran and proud American, I believe we need a national response to the gun violence that threatens so many of our communities.
