Antis Silent On New CDC Findings

posted on February 29, 2016

Gun-ban advocates who spend an inordinate amount of time complaining that the Centers for Disease Control isn’t allowed to do slanted anti-gun research to bolster their bogus claims are strangely silent on some recent CDC findings.

As Michael Strickland of thegatewaypundit.com pointed out over the weekend, a newly-released report on the causes of death in the United States showed that gun-related homicide doesn’t even crack the top 15, falling far behind heart disease, cancer, accidents, even flu and pneumonia. 

Strickland also points out the fallacy of anti-gun groups in their cry, “Do it for the children!” For kids age 0-14, the leading causes of death are accidents—but not gun accidents. In fact, accidental shootings resulted in 69 deaths in children 0-14 during the period studies, while drowning accounted for 625. To accentuate that point, Strickland wrote: “I’m waiting anxiously for the new, grassroots Moms For Water Safety group to form.”
