Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics Again
This article reminded me of an opinion in the capitol cities commie rag The Statesman's Urinal. Sorry. The Statesman Journal (force of habit). It was written by Oregon State Senator Avel Gordley (D) around 2002. She was outraged by the 9,000+ firearm related deaths of children per year in the USA. I would also be outraged if that were true. I checked her source. I don't remember it but could have been CDC. It was broken down by 5 year age groups. 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20. Wait! What! 18, 19, and 20 year olds are children? Could including many gang members, drug dealers, and other career criminals possibly skew the statistics? I e-mailed her questioning this and received the answer I expected. Nothing.
