 6,915 American troops have died fighting the Global War on Terror since 2001
 7,182 School aged children have been slaughtered in America since 2012
 Mathematics suggests that American campuses and communities are the true
 battlegrounds
 commentary: At this rate there will soon be no students left to teach math to!*
 How long must we offer up OUR CHILDREN as collateral damage to the political
 mediocrity in OUR CONGRESS?

<blockquote><p>Tell me with a straight face, to my face, that your right to own a gun outweighs the right for our teens and young kids to fucking live and go to school without fear of being shot dead. Tell me to my fucking face.<br/></p></blockquote>

<p>Surprise, less than 1% of the population that is armed and wearing body armor with aerial fire support and medical teams on standby tend to have a low casualty rate compared to defenseless schools that actively disarm law abiding citizens. </p>
</blockquote>

<p>Not to mention that A) OP didn’t cite any sources. Just put forth numbers and said, “Here’s your proof!” and B) the numbers are literal and complete bullshit. Since 2000, not 2012, around 250 students and teachers have died as a result of violence on school grounds.</p>
<p>OP’s numbers, if they weren’t completely pulled from their ass, may include all violence involving students regardless of location at the time, natural causes of death including of staff (heart attacks, etc), and suicides of students or staff regardless of location.</p>
<p>Tl;dr OP is full of shit and can’t cite nonexistent sources.</p>

<p>OP is completely full of shit. That number is the amount of children the gun-control advocacy group <a href="https://t.umblr.com/redirect?z=http%3A%2F%2Fabcnews.go.com%2FUS%2F7000-childrens-shoes-laid-capitol-lawn-honor-lives%2Fstory%3Fid%3D53710394&amp;t=MjZmYjE4ZmI0OTc4Mjc5NDIyMTQyZjU3YTIzOTRiZWE0ZTFhYzk0YSw2YTJiMWRiOTc5YWYxM2E3ZTMxNjE4ZTdkMjViYjYwMGE3ZmEyYWMy">AVAAZ <i>claims</i> have been killed by gunfire since 2012, not students killed in school shootings. </a></p>
<p>That’s all children, including suicides, accidental discharges, driveby shootings, it’s grossly inflated and OP should be ashamed of themselves.</p>
<p>There are also less than 2 million active troops. Anyone want to guess how many kids there are in the US? </p>
</blockquote>

<p>People like OP don’t care about saving lives, they just want to push an agenda. </p>
</blockquote>
<p>If you have to be disingenuous to make your point maybe it’s not a point that’s worth making.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>in fairness <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mqAXmF0_km0uU3TUzyTr4Qg">@demonessdollie</a> probably just took the statistic at face value out of ignorance, not actively trying to deceive people.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>I will say it with a straight face. My right as an innocent law-abiding citizen to own a gun, even those big scary rifles, has absolutely nothing to do with dead kids, and dead kids doesn’t give you the moral authority to take that right away from me.</p></blockquote>

<p>How can you look at those numbers and not immediately realize they’re bullshit? I mean seriously guys try harder.</p>

Definitely, Future, and Goals: WILLIONAIRE MENTOR IALWAYS WIN. NOT IMMEDIATELY BUT DEFINITELY. So you want the winners mentality? Read on!👇 ✔️Play to learn. How do you maintain a winning mindset when you lose? Champions have the mindset that if they lose, it is still a win because they learned something valuable. This allows them to interpret a seemingly discouraging experience as one that fuels determination. Look at times in your life where you have failed. Would you take that experience back in exchange for the lessons you learned? Likely, the future success you have had can be partially attributed to the wisdom you gained from your previous setback. You win every time when you play to learn! ✔️Risk = opportunity. An integral part of a winning mindset is seeing opportunity and risk as partners. In other words, you can’t have one without the other. I always wondered how some people found the courage to take risks continually. It’s because they understand that being risk-averse also means being opportunity-averse. Once I understood that, it became must easier to try something new and step out of my comfort zone. Here is why: I realized that risk can produce butterflies, but passing up a great opportunity will make you sick! It is all about how you interpret risk and opportunity. Can you guys relate to this one? ✔️Winning happens during practice. The will to win begins with preparing to win. “Practice like you compete, so you can compete like you practice.” ✔️They quit. People with a winning mindset make a habit of quitting! Now, I realize this seems a bit counterintuitive from what we believe about success. However, winners quit any attitude or action that is not moving them closer to their goals. They say, “DO” to whatever is contributing to their success and “NO” to whatever is delaying their success. 😉 - Leave a comment below and let me know what you think!👇 - success winner millionairementor
