Gun Control Crowd Continues To Misinform With False “Statistics”
Leave it to the gun grabbers to never let the facts get in the way of a good argument. After all, reality has a pesky way of undermining their so-called “facts” when anyone looks deeper, so they don’t give anyone enough information to really understand what they’re peddling.
Take, for example, this story at The Huffington Post.
He asserts that in the wake of these attacks, there are new calls for gun control. Maybe his staff found some obscure story on Fox or Brietbart or Guns.com and came up with this idea, but I work closely with gun violence prevention groups and what he says is simply not true. Our message is consistent, and I’ve seen no spike tied to the events in Europe.
Morgan [Griffith] makes the ridiculous false equivalent that terrorists using cars as a weapon are the same as this plague of gun violence. It’s the same flawed “whataboutism” we see from him and his ilk time after time. Sure, a hammer or a knife or a toaster for that matter can be used to kill someone. But hammers and knives don’t kill 90 people a day. As tragic as the terrorist incidents involving cars are, making that comparison is flawed and insulting.
The author of this post is right. Hammers and knives don’t kill 90 people per day.
But neither do guns.
