    “We lose eight children and teenagers to gun violence every day.

    If a mysterious virus suddenly started killing eight of our children every day, America would mobilize teams of doctors and public health officials. We would move heaven and earth until we found a way to protect our children. But not with gun violence.”

    Elizabeth Warren

    Politicians should make a law outlawing those irresponsible children and teenagers.

    An average of 33,855 people die every year in the US in car accidents.* That's an average of nearly 93 people per day.

    Should we outlaw cars?

    *Average of data from 2003-2012.

    Not a single child or teenager is "lost" anywhere at any time due to "gun violence".

    Guns don't commit violence.

    We also lose 4 to 7 children a day due to child abuse. Maybe we should outlaw parents.

    Did Fauxcahontas explain what she would do? As a Democrat, I'm sure her solution is to disarm the law abiding gun owners, but of those eight children who allegedly die due to gun violence, how many of them are inner city children who are victims of criminals and gang violence?

    And, for that matter, if she's that concerned about gun violence, then where is her outrage over the deaths of children by abortion?

    How many do we lose to abortion every day. And how many posts has the author of this thread made with the same regard.



    I rest my case.

    Can't rest your case with a red herring.

    Warren delivers her own red herring by offering up a mysterious "if" situation. If that's okay, then all other reasonings are okay too.

    This is definite proof that the Democrats should nominate the native American for President in 2016.

    Liz Warren lied about her lineage to secure a job meant for a minority.


    She also represented several large companies, and fought so they could start cutting retirement benefits, and payments to their victims of asbestos poisoning.


    Do the democrats have no shame ?


    Their support of this liar should say all you need to know.


    Do you trust her on anything ? I sure don't.

    I don't trust her either. That's why I independently verified the data.

    Shooting Down Statistical Violence Aimed at U.S. Gun Owners (Video)

    The home page of The Coalition Against Gun Violence displays a flag that states, “The United States Leads The Industrialized World in Gun Deaths,”, with a button below it that says “Act Now.” One would expect that if you clicked the “Act Now” tab, in addition to being able to contribute, you might get some type of story, statement, or statistics that back up that rather bold statement. But what is all too commonplace in the world of sensationalistic anti-Second Amendment organizations is that there is absolutely nothing on their entire website to back up that claim.

    Contrast that with a study released by Bill Whittle (shown) of TruthRevolt.org in the YouTube clip below.
