If you are a president interested in protecting Americans, read this

Consider:

  • 1 in 10.9 billion: Chance of an American being killed by an illegal immigrant
  • 1 in 3.64 billion: Chance of an American being killed by a refugee in a terrorist attack
  • 1 in 3.9 million: Chance of an American being killed by someone on the most common tourist visa

On the other hand:

  • 1 in 2.1 million: Chance of someone in Japan being killed by a gun in 2014 (total deaths = 6)
  • 1 in 944: Chance of someone in the United States being killed by a gun in 2014 (total deaths = 33,599)

Did you see that the House voted 235-180 (Roll Call 77) to reject an Obama rule that required the Social Security Administration to report people who receive disability benefits and have a mental health condition to the FBI’s background check system. The database is used to determine eligibility for buying a firearm.

The National Rifle Association opposed the rule.

The House vote was mostly along party lines: Republicans 229-2, Democrats 6-178
YES - MN01 Tim Walz MN02 Jason Lewis MN03 Erik Paulsen MN06 Tom Emmer
NO - MN04 Betty McCollum MN05 Keith Ellison MN08 Rick Nolan
Not voting MN07 Colin Peterson
