    Yep.....the democrat press has finally realized that more guns does not mean more gun accidental death......in fact, if we had gun safety education in public schools, even the already low number would be lower...

    Don't tell anybody, but accidental shooting deaths are way down - Hot Air

    While the cause for this is being debated along ideological lines, the LA Times reports that the numbers are nothing but good news, not that you’re hearing about it on the major news networks.


    Gun violence has received no shortage of attention. But one bright spot has gotten much less: the number of accidental shooting deaths has steadily declined.

    There were 489 people killed in unintentional shootings in the U.S. in 2015, the most recent year for which data is available. That was down from 824 deaths in 1999, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Taking into account population growth over that time, the rate fell 48%.

    Experts attribute the decline to a mix of gun safety education programs, state laws regulating gun storage in homes and a drop in the number of households that have guns. While the improvement occurred in every state, those with the most guns and the fewest laws continue to have the most accidental shooting deaths.

    We’re talking about the period between 1999 and 2015. So basically, in a roughly fifteen-year span, the number of accidental shooting deaths has been cut in half. Do we really need to bother with arguing over whywhen you see that sort of a headline? Well… yes, for two reasons. One is so that we can replicate the success across the board using the same methods. Sadly, the other is to make sure that people aren’t incorrectly claiming victory as an excuse to push their agenda. But what was the real cause here?

    You hit them where it hurts. They are even going as far as claiming the media is not leftist.

    Twit.....what homes did these kids come from...? That is the biggest factor since you guys always claim these kids are killed by guns in normal homes...when actual research shows their homes have felons who can't legally own guns in them......which is the biggest problem, not the gun....

    And they are morons...we went from 320 million guns in private hands to close to 600 million guns in private hands in that time period...and even if they are accurate......280 million more guns, and 60 accidental deaths...do you morons even realize how small that number is?

    Wow.....how do you guys dress and feed yourselves without help?
