A flawed picture

Richard Reid tried to blow up an airplane with a bomb in his shoe more than a decade ago. We still can’t get on airplanes with our shoes on.

Thirty thousand Americans die each year from gunshots, for a total of 300,000 gun deaths.

There have been 31 successful mass shootings in the United States since Ried’s attempt. Our gun laws have become less restrictive in the past 10 years.

What’s wrong with this picture?
