Everytown Foists More Bogus Stats On American Public

posted on May 9, 2015

Everytown for Gun Safety has released a recent “study” on children who have caused injuries or deaths with “unsecured” guns. The idea here was to make an impression, both with staggering numbers and by putting a human story behind each incident. But they shot themselves in the foot here—no word on whether the metaphorical firearm involved was properly secured—by making it so simple to recognize that their stats were bogus.

A Breitbart article by AWR Hawkins breaks down some of the bizarre inclusions in the list, many of which simply depict hunting or target-shooting accidents that did not produce life-threatening injuries. The guns in this category could in no way be said to be “unsecured.” It’s the infamous school shooting list all over again: When Everytown “researchers” don’t like the real numbers, they seem to have no qualms about inventing their own.
