Obama Repeats False Claim that Guns Are Number One Killer of Children

Former President Barack Obama responded to the Nashville Christian school shooting by falsely claiming that “guns are the number one killer of children.”

The false claim has been repeated many times by those on the left.

Last week, actor Billy Porter made the same false claim as Obama during an appearance on ABC’s The View, saying, “the leading cause of death in children are guns” during an appearance on ABC’s The View.

Porter’s claim, which Obama repeated, has been regurgitated widely by leftists and non-fact-checking moderates throughout 2022 following a CDC study claiming guns were the number one killer of children.

Even Fox News ran a story with the same claim, titled, “Guns now the leading cause of death for US children, per CDC.”

The article noted that firearm-related deaths of people ages 0-19 totaled 4,368 in 2020 – as per CDC figures, while vehicle deaths for the same age totaled 4,036.

President Joe Biden reacted to the CDC figures last year, claiming, “Guns are the number one killer of children.”

But according to Breitbart News, the only way to make the claim work is to count 18 and 19-year-olds as children.

As the report notes:

But if one does a custom search on the CDC website to adjust the category of children to include only those aged 0-17, only those below voting and military age, then the outcome completely flips.

One sees that the number of firearm-related deaths for children aged 0-17 was 2,281 in 2020, while the number of motor vehicle deaths for the same ages was 2,503.

Another important point to note is that the false parameters — treating 18 and 19-year-olds as children for the benefit of boosting reportable gun death numbers — actually works against the left. That is because CDC numbers for children ages 0-19 show that individuals are 27 times more likely to die in an accidental car death instead of an accidental gun death.

The news comes on the heels of the horrific Christian school shooting, which saw a 28-year-old transgender person identifying slay three children aged nine and three adults.

Police killed Audrey Elizabeth Hale after a confrontation with officers.

Hale also had a manifesto and detailed maps of the school.

Police chief John Drake said: “We have a manifesto. We have some writings that we’re going over that pertain to this day, the actual incident. We have a map drawn out about how this was all going to take place.”

What a stupid, ignorant comment to make. You can lay a gun down on a table in a room full of children and as long as no one touches it, no one will be harmed. However, if someone picks up the gun and shoots at someone, someone may be killed. What is the obvious independent variable here? THE PERSON WHO SHOT THE GUN! Guns don’t S***t people, people S***t people!

Abortion is the #1 killer of children. Nearly one million per year in the US. These are preventable, violent deaths. Perhaps Obama just forgot about this? He loves children so much and wants to protect them.

Why are “Caitlyn” Jenner, “Lia” Thomas, “Rachel” Levine etc referred to as simply transgender and by their assumed names rather than their birth names, but Audrey Hale is described as “Transgender identifying” and I had to scour through at least 5 reports about this incident before finding an outlet who even acknowledged that “he” identified “him”self as Aiden.

Why is misgendering, deadnaming and using the incorrect pronouns suddenly acceptable?

Whether he is a he or she is a she, her deadname is appropriate.

Anyone who identifies as Trans/binary shows how messed up they are.  Give these sick people  psychological help. Put the Doctors in jail that give them s*x development drugs and operations to cut off s*x parts. ANTIFA  is mostly rich, spoiled white kids screwed up by their liberal parents and our education system. Most identify as Trans/binary which shows how messed up they are.

not even close, and if you take out the 30% or so that are suicides, guns drop way down the list. Oh, and don’t be caught in their other big lie – “children” are up to age 25!! Yikes! Of course that includes all the drug dealers and gang bangers in their eternal turf wars. In the real world we have children, teens, and adults. In their evil world they move the goalposts wherever it benefits their agenda.

Somebody should ask dumbo ears what happened to that CDC study on gun violence he commissioned. Oh yeah it stated the assault weapon ban had no effect, so he made the study disappear.
