Nationally, over 33,000 people die of gun related injuries annually, 2/3 of which are suicides. In Minnesota, about 450 people are gun victims annually, of which over 80% are suicides. The USA has more homicides by gun than all of the other high income countries combined, at a rate 20x higher.
Come and be part of the solution. In this Reformation celebration year, be a “Little Christ” for gun safety.
