Oh the precious value of ignoring an entire clause...
Two children lose their lives in unintentional shootings almost every week in the United States, a finding that is substantially higher than government figures, according to a new study published Wednesday by a leading gun-control advocacy group.
The study, titled “Innocents Lost: A Year of Unintentional Child Gun Deaths,” listed 100 deaths in 35 states for 2013.
The findings represent a 61 percent higher figure than the average number of unintentional gun deaths reported annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from 2007 through 2011, according to the report, published by the organization Everytown for Gun Safety.
But if gun laws were more strict, only criminals would be able to accidentally shoot children. And that would make Wayne LaPierre sad.
