In a released statement, the CDL of Texas refuted findings that show despite a massive outpouring of thoughts and prayers following every major shooting event in US history, there seems to be no decrease in gun-related deaths.
According to gun violence data, there are an estimated 47,141 gun-related incidents to date in the United States in 2017. Of those incidents, there have been 11,789 deaths due to gunfire. The numbers continue to pile up despite calls unto the Heavens unleashed by Americans.
Leaders within the right-wing community are urging Americans to stay the course and not give much thought to resolving issues with gun violence. Perhaps there is a critical threshold where there will be just enough gun violence inflicted upon people in school, movie theaters, concerts and street restaurants that God will just say ‘okay, they finally hit that gun-violence threshold and asked for just the right amount of help. Enough is enough.”
