Glorification of guns ignores SC tragedies

February 11, 2014 

Our elected officials and candidates consider it really important to have their photos taken with their guns.

Do you think they know that South Carolina is number one in deaths caused by domestic partners? Do they know that the majority of those murdered are women? Do they know that 60 percent of those deaths are caused by guns? Talk about a war on women.
