New Brady Gun-Control Campaign Calls 19-Year-Olds “Toddlers”

posted on October 22, 2016

The Brady Campaign has launched Toddlers Kill, a campaign featuring alarming hype about children and firearms. The sarcastic campaign video features toddlers exclusively with the tagline, “Guns don’t kill people; toddlers kill people.”

However, the Brady Campaign deliberately confuses toddlers with teens up to 19 years old, claiming “2,624 kids and teens die from gun violence” each year. In truth, CDC data shows that only 50 children under age 14 were killed in accidental shootings in 2014; an additional 225 children under 15 were murdered—clearly not accidents. Brady drastically inflates its total by including crime-related murders among 14- to 19-year-olds. 

Brady’s Dan Gross admitted, “This isn’t just about toddlers,” the truest statement associated with the campaign. However, “Toddlers Kill” is grossly misleading by any standard, and surfacing less than three days after Hillary Clinton’s bizarre claim that the historic Heller decision was about protecting “toddlers” suggests collusion as well as confusion.
