“Toddlers Kill” Ad Campaign Lies, Includes Adults in Stats

In the latest ad campaign titled “Toddlers Kill,” gun control activists misrepresent gun statistics to make it look like more toddlers accidentally kill people with guns than reality.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Brady Campaign launched its “Toddlers Kill” campaign on Monday with a series of online video and image ads. It simultaneously launched ToddlersKill.org, which features a variety of claims about children and firearms. The public relations campaign is meant as a sarcastic play on common gun rights arguments. One of the campaign’s taglines is “guns don’t kill people, toddlers kill people.”

The campaign’s ads exclusively use imagery of toddlers and young children, but some of its gun violence statistics include incidents having nothing to do with children. In one tweet, the Brady Campaign claimed that “about 2,600 kids & teens are killed by guns each year.”

The Brady Campaign pointed to a fact sheet published by its sister organization, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, to corroborate the statistic. The fact sheet claims “2,624 kids and teens die from gun violence” each year, based on analysis of a Centers for Disease Control database. The statistic counts the firearm-related deaths of everyone under age 19, from toddlers to 18 and 19-year-old adults.

It’s pretty ironic that Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of using “scare tactics” for describing late term abortion during the final presidential debate, when progressives are straight up lying about statistics to make people believe babies are killing everybody.

Facts are always an afterthought to the Left.
