Ever since the tragic shooting in Las Vegas Sunday night, legions of celebrities who have very little knowledge of guns, criminal psychology, mental disorders, or any helpful information. Have taken to Twitter or gone on television to offer their solutions, to the problem of mass shootings in America.
The latest such incident of ill-informed advice, in the sports world, comes from New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton.
On Tuesday, Payton responded to the heinous Las Vegas attack by tweeting claims that, since 1968, more Americans have been killed by guns than have been killed on all battlefields throughout the whole of the American experience.
Crazy statistic!! It's time. #CommonSense pic.twitter.com/ve9CJNJx5D

Note how he followed the claim with the hashtag common sense. Ironically, if we look at this death claim comparison via common sense we quickly see it is a a facade.
For example, the number of Americans killed on the Civil War battlefield alone was approximately 620,000 and the number killed in World II was 418,000. From those two wars alone we are already at 1,038,000. Add the approximate 115,000 from WWI, the 35,000 from Korea, and the 58,000 from Vietnam and we are at 1,246,000 without even considering the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Spanish American War, Desert Storm, Afghanistan, Iraq, and others.

Way to go Sean. I’ll bet I don’t miss anything else you say.
I have an idea, Run it by Bob Costas. OOps i’ll miss that as well.
Bye Bye Bye NFL. I couldn’t care less about what you think.
This is some lib talking point...heard sen. Murphy saying same thing...
Oh I love your chart.
Technically and literally, that is psychosis on their part.
image sizing sorry
Dear Extreme-Extreme - that’s what I think. It is Soros money messing with the NFL. They want to destroy football, further divide the nation. Follow the money.
Are there any stats that include past 6 years?
more Americans killed by cars than by guns
The nfl is destroying its reputation for manliness
Also: America,and the western world.
Now I know why the NFL is in such trouble........they are stupid at EVERY level.
they can scream and cry all they want...not to sound cruel, but it doesn’t matter how many get killed in these attacks,they will never disarm this country.
you can’t fix stupid
Approximately 50,000 killed every year in auto accidents.
I have given up on the nfl, but not America: In Trump, we have the manliest leader in the world (even more so than Israel’s Bibi). And his wife is drop-dead gorgeous. Even when she had a mixed look of anger and sadness during the moment of silence for the Vegas victims yesterday, she nevertheless took my breath away. That’s one of the things that a manly man does: Stand alongside a wife who stuns other men. :)
No apology necessary, Hope that helps.
don’t disagree, but I don’t know those stats
at their great cost, soon to be known to them.
