Here's an example:
In four of the five states — California, Georgia, North Carolina and Ohio — The Times identified roughly twice as many accidental killings as were tallied in the corresponding federal data. In the fifth, Minnesota, there were 50 percent more accidental gun deaths.That (GASP!!!!!) 50% INCREASE!!!! Oh NOES!!!!! SAVE THE CHILDREN!!!!
Look at the chart beside it.
Yep. 4 over a period of 13 years for a TOTAL of 12.
While every child death is a tragedy, even if the NYT numbers are correct, that means that the numbers have STILL dropped over the years as the mis-identification would have been going on well before '99.
And the anti's still oppose education in lieu of attempts to make firearms more complicated, dangerous and expensive.
