FACT SHEET: New Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence and Make Our Communities

Gun violence has taken a heartbreaking toll on too many communities across the country. Over the past decade in America, more than 100,000 people have been killed as a result of gun violence—and millions more have been the victim of assaults, robberies, and other crimes involving a gun. Many of these crimes were committed by people who never should have been able to purchase a gun in the first place. Over the same period, hundreds of thousands of other people in our communities committed suicide with a gun and nearly half a million people suffered other gun injuries. Hundreds of law enforcement officers have been shot to death protecting their communities. And too many children are killed or injured by firearms every year, often by accident. The vast majority of Americans—including the vast majority of gun owners—believe we must take sensible steps to address these horrible tragedies.

How Many Keyboards can a 12 ga Slug Shoot Through?

By Andrew Betts

As gun owners, we often get wrapped around the axle about how serious guns are. It is true that they are inherently dangerous tools and it is true that, with proper training, a firearm makes a formidable defensive weapon, but they are also ridiculously fun to shoot. As fun as it is to shoot paper, clay, and steel, sometimes it is a real hoot to shoot other things, too.

 

 

Who knew that there was sheet metal and thick wires inside a new style membrane keyboard? Who would have thought a keyboard could stop a slug so quickly? This sort of “test” doesn’t really teach us anything we didn’t already know, but it does remind us that shooting is supposed to be fun.

If you are blessed to have access to places like this to shoot, though, please bring along a few trash bags and always leave the site cleaner than you find it.
