Fact Checking the Anti-Civil Rights crowd

Reason Magazine sheads some reality on the lies:

"In any case, note that the 'children' killed by firearms include older teenagers, among them 18-year-olds and 19-year-olds, a.k.a. 'adults.' Judging from the breakdown in 1998 (I can't find comparable data for 1997), more than 80 percent of gun deaths for the under-20 group involve teenagers 15 or older. About 58 percent of the gun deaths that year were homicides, and these included drug dealers shot by other drug dealers, violent criminals shot by police, and other noninnocent nonchildren. About 33 percent of the gun deaths were suicides; 7 percent were accidents."

It's the same old song and dance. The gun grabbers have to lie in order to make themselves sound reasonable.
They are anti-civil rights fear mongers who'd rather see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose than see her with a gun in her hand.

Simply put, gun control cannot survive without an accompanying sea of disinformation.
