Sen. Durbin: ‘More Americans Are Dying from Americans Killing Americans’ than Terrorism
DURBIN: "Foreign sources of terrorism need to be carefully watched. When it comes to our border security, when it comes to background checks and the like. But let's be honest, more Americans are dying from Americans killing Americans with guns than by terrorist activity. It is just as much a death as any foreign terrorist threat would be. And we need to consider it just as seriously as we do when it comes to the issues of terrorism and safety for the people of America. Why doesn't the United States Congress take this up? Why don't we even have a debate?"
