More 19 yr old 'Children'....

Title of a report on a new 'study':
More Kids Suffer Firearm Injuries Than Researchers Previously Believed, Study Finds

In those eight years, they counted nearly 186,000 children, from newborns to 19-year-olds, who had been treated for firearm injuries.

Sorry. Again, 18 and 19 yr olds aren't 'children' by any definition unless you're deliberately trying to fudge the numbers to push an agenda. If they're involved in a gang, then it's arguable those 16 & 17 yr olds aren't innocent victims either.
63 percent of the firearm injuries were intentional – from homicides, suicide attempts, or encounters with law enforcement.
And instead of focusing on the larger number, they focus on the smaller number of accidents, a number that has been decreasing thanks to efforts by the NRA's Eddie Eagle and other safety courses.

I'll lay money that when this 'study' is published, it shows it received funding from the Joyce Foundation.

I wouldn't take that bet on a DARE! Kinda funny how the lefties seem to only quote the news from their own mills.

Could it be a conspiracy...or is it so simple that the only "Good" anti-gun news is manufactured?

Occam's Razor and all...

If you want an example of feckless disregard for danger, remember that the so-called "children" aged 18 or 19 were important in helping elect the POTUS.

Sorry, but if you can vote or be drafted into the military, you are certainly not a child.
