And the CDC decided to include anyone up to age 25 in the child deaths from guns so they could include "gang killings" in the total, since most are under 25.

There are 100 kids a year killed in accidental drownings in pools.
There are 1300 kids killed in accidental gun incidents.

I remember when Ralph Nadar was promoting legislation for vehicle safety laws and conservatives considered him the devil incarnate. Ironically, all these laws and legislation reduced traffic deaths.

And the swimming pool thing is even more ridiculous. We don't have an epidemic of people running around drowning people in swimming pools. When's the last time there was a headline that said "22 people killed in mass drowning?"


I support the use of seatbelts and airbags- they save lives.


Taking guns away from a population has led to the deaths of hundreds of millions.


See 20th century history.

I have learned that Gun Sales spike for darn near reason. At least at my gun range this is acknowledged, we all use any excuse to buy some crap I don't need that will sit in on a shelf or a safe with little use.

The numbers don't lie and the two gun store owners I visit also don't lie. Most people buying guns when a threat is made are people who already have guns.

Seems to follow he same rules for most things in America. There is always a surge when false scarcity is invoked. See this in Florida all the time with the sale of water and generators during the hurricane season. A vailed threat to us sends thousands out boarding up windows and buying gallons of water before we even know if the storm is coming to Florida.

It's disturbing how many people out there now think that these are faked by the Deep State to push gun control.

No serious gun control measures ever come out of these. What does happen is gun sales skyrocket. So if there's conspiracy anywhere it would be among gun dealers/manufacturers.

Every day, about 10 people drown to death in the US, whereas there are about 30 gun homicides per day.

Cons have to make up their own statistics to support their arguments.

Thank you for the profits I will be enjoying.

Liberals will never learn what exactly?


That more guns, with few restrictions results in more mass shootings?
Thanks for the reminder but we all know that already.

Also, according to this logic, we should legalize ownership of nuclear weapons. Because, after all, nuclear weapons haven't killed anyone in a long, long time. So they must be even safer than guns!
