    'The Simpsons' totally nailed gun control in just 4 stills

    Scientists and public health experts agree. Widespread public availability of firearms is not safe and increase the number of firearms-related incidents that result in unnecessary damage, injuries, and fatalities. According to NYU researcher Sripal Bangalore:

    "The gun ownership rate [is] a strong and independent predictor of firearm-related death … There was a significant correlation between guns per head per country and the rate of firearm-related deaths with Japan being on one end of the spectrum and the U.S. being on the other. This argues against the notion of more guns translating into less crime."

    The World Knows About Sandy Hook. But The Murders In This Neighborhood? Not So Much.

    Even after the tragedy at Sandy Hook, Congress dropped the ball by not passing a bill to help keep guns from falling into the wrong hands. Hell, even the overwhelming majority of NRA members (74%) support no-brainer solutions like comprehensive background checks for the purchase of firearms. Wonder if the political hacks who blocked the bill would see things differently if they lived in places like this.

    Republicans stir up controversy over Obama’s nomination for Surgeon General. Dr. Vivek Murthy upset Republicans by saying guns are a healthcare issue and that the NRA holds too much power over politicians.

    His original Tweet read “Tired of politicians playing politics w/ guns, putting lives at risk b/c they’re scared of NRA. Guns are a health care issue” and you can find it HERE.

    It’s horrifyingly easy to buy a gun on Facebook, even kids can do it

    An investigation by VentureBeat found dozens of pages on Facebook where guns and gun accessories such as semi-automatic rifles, pistols, silencers and other equipment are sold. The pages go under names like Firearms Only Alamogordo, Guns for Sale, I Love Guns and Guns, Ammo & Blades. While these groups function as entirely legitimate ways for gun enthusiasts to connect and talk with each other as well as provide a venue for completely legal private transactions, they also provide an opportunity for unregulated, illegal sales of high-powered equipment to be sold under the radar and away from the eyes of the authorities.

    The Hearts They’re Holding Look Cute, But What’s Written On Them Is Much Less So

    How do you mend a cold congressman’s heart? Well, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (the 130,000-member grassroots group) had an idea.

    There have been 44 school shootings since Newtown in America, so these moms ran a campaign asking Congress to introduce responsible gun laws. They created these heart messages with their children, which they delivered to members of Congress in person and through social media, asking them to act.

    The Photos Facebook Doesn’t Want You To See Are A Whole Lot Better Than The Ones It Does

    Facebook has a policy against breastfeeding photos on their site. However, they are totally cool with gun owners selling guns without background checks to anyone who wants to make a deal. Facebook also recently launched the Look Back video feature, which many of you may have seen. So an organization made an amazing little Look Back video about how the gun market works on the world’s largest social media network. Let’s help Facebook get their priorities in check.
