Letter To The Editor: Questioning Writer’s Arithmetic

By JERRY FLEMING
Los Alamos
14,196 murders in America by firearm, of every type and description, and 69 percent of those were by firearm (letter). That equals about one per day.
Without getting into the subject of the memo, I’d question the arithmetic.
14,196 murders by firearm in 2013 divided by 365 days in a year = about 39 murders by firearm per day, not one! That’s over 1.5 per hour.
