Going Postal

There are 81 gun deaths per day in the USA.

That figure has probably increased since 2004, too. I imagine it's in the 90s now. Information for Great Britain is available for 2009: about 40 deaths PER YEAR. So, why is it that people freak out when we someone says we need stricter gun laws? Obviously, we do.
