Rossie O'Dumbell er O'Donnel hyperventilates about an alleged 4,000 children who die each year from gunfire. The statistic is genuine as a child is defined as any unmarried person under the age of twenty one. Thus is two twenty year old drug dealers assume room temperature and one is married and the other is not the unmarried one gets counted as a child.
The number of children 14 and under who die each year from gunfire is around 200. Even this number may not tell the entire story as the number of deaths attributable to drug dealing violence is not tabulated. Thus if little Herbie dies in a cross fire between two drug dealers the cause of death is more related to drugs. Children
are more likely to die from burns 1,000, car crashes 2,900 and drowning 950. Children are also more likely to die in accidents involving bicycles.
Thus Rosie O'Dumbell and company have another agenda. The NYC variant of gun control is a form of elitism . In NYC Joan Rivers and Donald Trump can and have been issues pistol permits. However Martha Jones who lives in a crime infested area can not afford the fees and the legal help to defend her home. The obvious overtones are not racial but financial.
The left hyperventilates about the NRA Eddie the Eagle classes. Young children are instructed to leave the area if a gun is found and tell an adult. A study was shown that young children who had taken the cass avoided the gun while those who did not aimed and pointed an unloaded gun. Now if we had proper education gun safety would be part of the school ciriculum and handled in the same manner as sex ed and drivers ed. Let parents write the school if they want their children not to participate.
The hysteria about children and guns is unwarranted . Children are far more likely to suffer from abusive parents like Nixmary Brown then to be cut down by a gun. The roles of drug, alcohol abuse and fathers who are MIA are swept under the rug. Children would be far better served by prosecuting drug users and proting in tact families then by the anti gun mania .
Comming up Next Myth Number 4
Does the second amendment only grant rights to militia.
Is Mr Beamish correct that all of us are part of the militia ?
Why don't the rest of us know this ?
Hold onto your seat as the the series continues.
