Gun Control, Are you prepared

It almost feels like every 3rd day there is another mass shooting. And lately there has been a lot of talk about guns, and our right to have them.  One of the arguments that people that are anti gun control say is “I need guns to protect myself and my family.”

Well statistically speaking you are more likely to kill your family than some intruder is…but that’s beside the point, and I don’t want to get into a pro gun, anti gun debate.  I won’t even tell you wear I stand on the issue.

If I told you, someone was going to creep through your window at night, and murder you while you weren’t expecting it…you would likely verify the threat, call the police, get security systems and the whole nine yards to safeguard you against a threat.

Here’s the thing, the highest cause of death in the US (at least from 2016, but I doubt it’s changed much) is heart disease…not homicide, not even close actually and that’s for all races.

And the kicker is it’s to a large extent preventable.  So whether or not you are for arming yourself to the teeth or not, you should take care of your health first.  And beyond that, being healthy is always a good thing and isn’t even close to being a polarizing issue like gun control is.
