I want a Town Hall!

Here are from stats from 2016 from the CDC (2017 not out yet)

For kids 14 and under:

Accidental deaths due to firearms - 76
Homicides with firearms - 227
Total firearms deaths (excluding suicide) - 303
Drowning - 713
Motor Vehicle Accidents -1261

Where are the town halls for banning backyard pools??? No back yard pool has EVER been used to stop or deter a crime. It's time for lawmakers and the pool lobby to answer some tough questions regarding these back yard death machines! And, I recently found out, there are ZERO regulations on who can buy a pool, they even have little ones in the toy section at Walmart!!!!

I had to bounce around to a few pages to get all the numbers, but it all came from cdc.gov

Don't forget the cause of death for more than a half million children each year. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/66/ss/ ... ss6624a1_w
