31 Bullets

 Source: The Chicago Sun-Times

The Chicago Sun-Times has launched a campaign against gun violence called “31 Bullets”. It takes its name from the number of bullets manufactured each year in America, 10 billion, divided by the total population. This results in 31 bullets sold for every child, woman, and man.

In the coming months, the Sun-Times will be announcing 31 actions and ideas for reducing gun violence. The first of these actionable ideas has been posted: An encouragement to sign the Sandy Hook Promise petition to keep guns out of schools.
