If the NRA says ‘Who Cares’ to over 4300 deaths, then what must the UN and Human Rights Watch be saying as thousands starve to death or die of sickness in Africa? “We’d care, but we’re too busy bashing Israel”? -sacred-fox
Folks, this pro-gun person shows up in my Ask every once in a while trying to prove that the NRA really isn’t that bad. In this case: there are starving kids in Africa, so gun deaths in America are NBD.
Friend, I’m glad you asked. Obviously you care very deeply about the plight of Africans, and are in no way holding them up as a prop to defend your views on reasonable gun control. Which is why I’m so very thrilled to let you know that the UN has a whole page just for news regarding their work in Africa. Similarly, the HRW has a page about their work there.
And, obviously - I’m sure you already know this and I’m just repeating things you’re intimately familiar with, humor me - Africa is not a monolith of sick and starving people. It’s a continent with many countries that run the gamut from impoverished nations to first-class urban destinations. For instance, the healthcare system in Morocco outranks the one here in the US of A. So I encourage you to check out the UN’s special pages on Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. On the HRW page I linked above, you can check out each individual country in Africa in which they’re working.
So, in short, you can find out exactly what they’re saying about each and every country in Africa. Having trouble finding an official statement from the NRA re: 4300+ gun deaths since Newtown, however.
