More Americans have been killed in our country within in [sic] the last year by guns than all U.S. soldiers killed in all of the years of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Richard Aborn writes in the New York Daily News.

I’d be interested to hear from some of the people who insisted to me yesterday that Iraq and Afghanistan are good examples of an insurgency with small arms standing up to a military that possesses overwhelming firepower.

From this statistic, it sure seems like the small arms you desperately believe are going to ward off governmental tyranny are really far more useful at killing (defenseless) civilians than soldiers.
