Stephen Hodgson — like most liberals — left out a few things called facts in his letter ("We should work together to solve gun issues in US," The Daily News, Oct. 29). He states: "Our national average of deaths by guns is very high, exceeded only by traffic accidents and natural causes."
OK ... let's be more specific here: The leading causes of death in the USA in 2016 (through June 15) were abortion at No. 1 with 501,325 (not natural at all); heart disease (282,038); hospital associated infections (45,449); drunk driving (15,521); all drug abuse related deaths (11,479); and last on the list was murder by gun, which comes in at 5,276 — not much compared to abortions, is it?
Abortions are the epidemic needing action, not guns.
Sorry, Mr. Liberal ... go back to New York City!
