Skip to comments.FactCheck.Org: Bloomberg’s Gun Control Commercial Is Misleading
Posted on 02/03/2020 9:43:02 AM PST by conservative98
FactCheck.Org points out that Bloombergs commercial about instituting gun control in order to keep children safe, with George Kemps mom quoted saying, Mikes fighting for every child.
However, Kemp was 20 years of age at the time of his death and, therefore, not a child. But Bloombergs use of Kemps death explains how the ad claims, 2,900 children die from gun violence every year.
FactCheck.Org explains Bloombergs children moniker does include those who are old enough to vote, join the military, etc. They report, It does include many 18- and 19-year-olds who also were legally considered adults in most U.S. states not children, as the ad claims.
FactCheck.Org notes that when 18 and 19 year-olds are removed from the equation the number of deaths drops by nearly half, or just below 1,500. And they point to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention findings that show that only 792 deaths of 0-17 year-olds were homicides, and even some of those were justifiable gun uses. Thirty-nine percent were were suicidesi.e., not gun violence deathsand 88 were unintentional.
The cause behind roughly 30 of the deaths could not be determined.

TRUMP WINS AGAIN: CNN Is Now Fact-Checking Trump's Claim that Mini-Mike Bloomberg Wants a Box to Stand on at Debates https://t.co/xyRsMU9BYC via @gatewaypundit— Jim Hoft (@gatewaypundit) February 3, 2020
It was typical utter libtard progressive BS!!!
There is no other article on the FactCheck.org breakdown. This is the first.
More, it was full of lies.
We need to bring back dueling. Little midget sissy pants would shut their gobs if there were repercussions.
Obamacare raised the age of “children” to 24 in some cases.
For me, “child” means pre-pubescent. This is why I believe that to really be a pedophile, you have to be attracted to “pre-pubescent” kids. I think a grown man trying to date 14 year old girls is creepy and should be illegal, but depending on the girl, I don’t necessarily consider it to be pedophilia.
So when I hear about “children” in the leftist press, I’m always wondering if they are including those 17 year old boys with AK-47’s.
Did you ever notice that they feel COMPELLED to lie? Somewhere in this country a non criminal under the age of 18 got shot. Country of 300 million, it has to have happened at least once. Statistically, everything that is possible happened to someone in the US. Failing that are lots of 14 year old gang bangers that get killed EVERY YEAR. They exist. But they didn’t just go find one. They had to find a lie to tell. To me that just speaks to character.
I would point out that INTENTIONAL “missleading” is known as lying.
They are democrats therefore they lie.
I have used the death statistics many time in refuting libtartds false claims about gun violence.
