More Gun Control Lies: Children, traffic accidents and gun deaths

Jeff Knox:
In discussing the lies and distortions popular among anti-rights extremists – and their media supporters – I recently commented on their claims that “3000 children die in gun violence every year,” and that “gun deaths exceed traffic deaths” deserve more thorough scrutiny.

It has been said that a half-truth is like a half brick – it goes farther. The “3000 children” chestnut is a fine example of a lie that contains a half-truth. The total number of “children” – people nineteen or under – who died from gunfire has hovered around 2700 annually for several years. No doubt it’s too high, but the number includes murders and suicides among teens.

In their propaganda pieces and campaigns like ASK (“Asking Saves Kids), the Brady Bunch and their media friends use the “3000 children” number to focus attention on accidental “gun deaths” deaths of children in the home, but a closer look at the numbers reveal a very different story.

According to the CDC, there were 110 unintentional, firearm-related deaths among children and youth age 0 to 19 in 2012. While that is unacceptably high, it is a far cry from 3000. It is also important to consider that this CDC statistic includes hunting accidents, teens who should have known better, and adults who accidentally shot children. Still, the Brady Bunch implies that 3000 small children’s lives could be saved if parents would “just ask” about guns. The implication is intentional and it is untrue. In other words, it is a lie.
