  • Leading causes of death from infectious diseases were acute lower respiratory infections (3.7 million), tuberculosis (2.9 million), diarrhea (2.5 million), HIV/AIDS (2.3 million) and malaria (1.5-2.7 million).

Contrary to what MAIG and the Anti's are shouting from the rooftops,
I didn't see 'assault rifles' or 'shooting' anywhere in the demographics...

Attention Do Gooder Gun-Control/Banner activists:

Everyone else
