Former congresswoman and gun control poster girl Gabby Giffords’ gun control group has been caught doing what all gun control groups do: Lying.
Americans for Responsible Solutions, the organization operated by Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly, recently made some absolutely ridiculous claims. ARS made the knowingly deceptive claim that “2015 will be the first year young Americans are more likely to die from gun violence than from car accidents.”
According to the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action:
The gun control supporters at Americans for Responsible Solutions ought to rename their group Anti-Gunners for Irresponsible Statistics after the bogus claim they made this week about the number of firearm and car accident deaths among young people each year. The group claimed that there are more than 30,000 firearm-related deaths, plus more than 30,000 car accident deaths among young people each year.
