Why Do Democrats Have to Lie About Gun Violence Stats?

In his ongoing quest to purchase the Democratic nomination, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg spent $10 million for a Super Bowl advertisement highlighting his number one issue: gun control. But seeing as how the commercial relies on misleading stats and a very misleading victimhood story to impart a false narrative about children and gun violence, we’re left to wonder: Why do Democrats constantly have to resort to deception to push their anti-Second Amendment agenda?

In the advertisement, Calandrian Simpson Kemp emotionally recalls the day her son was shot.

“On a Friday morning, George was shot. George didn’t survive,” she says in the spot. “I just kept saying, ‘You cannot tell me that the child that I gave birth to, is no longer here.’ Lives are being lost every day. It is a national crisis.”

Kemp’s remarks are followed by a statistic: “2,900 CHILDREN DIE FROM GUN VIOLENCE EVERY YEAR.”

Make no mistake, it’s an effective commercial.

But there are some problems, as Fox News reports:

A recent report from the Bloomberg-founded group Everytown for Gun Safety came up with that same number — but only when it included teenagers ages 18 and 19 in the calculation. Bloomberg’s advertisement makes no mention of older teenagers and suggests that the statistic is referring to younger children only. Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski found that once adults were removed from the calculation, the number dropped by nearly half.

Additionally, court documents from a Texas state appellate court reviewed by Fox News show that the victim referenced in the advertisement, George Kemp, was 20 years old at the time of his death.

“On September 26, 2013, just before midnight, the police received a dispatch for shots fired,” the court wrote in its opinion, which denied an attempt to throw out evidence in the case. “When they arrived, they discovered a deceased male, later identified as George Kemp, age 20, lying face down in a pool of blood.”

The court said the case arose from a “gang-related shooting,” writing that “two groups of young men” had met that night “for a fight,” including a group led by “B. Dilworth, which included … Kemp.”

It is, of course, tragic to hear from a mother lamenting the violent death of her son. And it is tragic that gang violence continues to ravage some of the most vulnerable communities in America. But why isn’t that enough? Why does the left have to stretch the truth beyond the breaking point to make their case for new laws? Why can’t they be straight with the American people?

Well, the question answers itself. If you tell the truth about these stats and the truth about the circumstances of these horrible killings, you soon realize that, whatever our gun violence problems might be, they won’t be solved by banning “assault rifles” or expanding background checks or limiting magazines. These are problems that speak to cultural rot, a runaway drug market, and the failure of Democrat-controlled cities.

That might make for an effective Super Bowl ad…but it wouldn’t be one produced by Bloomberg.

  1. use your gun to free america and shoot every democrat you can find and all rino republicans..we dont need that trash in our country. al sharpton is at the top of the list in illinios and barock head oboma is secont

  2. Why do they lie about guns, Like the SS of Germany the democrats believe that only the true socialist of this Nation should be armed against all others, just like the Nazi-Socialistic party under Adolf Hitler.

    And like the death camps of Germany and Russia, Sander calls for the same when stated we need “Gulag” which is a system of labor camps maintained in the Soviet Union from 1930 to 1955 in which many people died. A camp in the Gulag system, or any political labor camp.

    • Check this out – who are members of the Republican Party and vote with them….
      Current Klan organizations
      A list is maintained by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL):[230]
      • Bayou Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, prevalent in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and other areas of the Southern U.S.
      • Church of the American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan[216]
      • Imperial Klans of America[231]
      • Knights of the White Camelia[232]
      • Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, headed by national director and self-claimed pastor Thomas Robb, and based in Harrison, Arkansas.[233][234] It claims to be the largest Klan organization in America today.[235]
      • Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a North Carolina-based group headed by Will Quigg,[236] is currently thought to be the largest KKK chapter.[237]
      • White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan

  3. Why Do Democrats Have to Lie About Gun Violence Stats? To hide the Historic Truth!
    So No Guns = No Gun Deaths….Here’s a History Lesson for you:

    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjugated races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjugated races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.”
    ― Adolf Hitler

    Adolf Hitler rose from obscurity to become the infamous leader of the Nazi Party and eventually Fuhrer of Germany. He led the German people to catastrophe in the Second World War, which claimed the lives of between 60 to 80 million people ― including six million Jews and five million other “undesirables” in Europe. Almost all of whom were unarmed and helpless to slow the Nazi war machine.

    “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.”
    ― Mao Zedong

    Mao Zedong was a communist revolutionary, founder of the People’s Republic of China, and has the dishonorable distinction of being one of the worst human beings in history. The estimated number of Chinese who died during his 27-year-reign range from 40 to 70 million.

    “The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements …. They were elements of disorder and subversion. On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind. This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy, has given satisfactory results.”
    ― Benito Mussolini

    Benito Mussolini was an Italian politician who rose to become the leader of his country’s National Fascist Party. He was elected Prime Minister, but shortly after that dropped any pretense of democracy and established a dictatorship. In World War II, he threw his support behind the Axis Powers, thereby sealing his fate.

    History has shown Governments have disarmed and executed over 262 million of their own people in the 20th Century! So tell me again why Governments should be the only one’s with guns?

  4. If the TRUTH was told, people would buy MORE guns, since Socialist/Communists are trying to DISARM America to allow a TYRANNICAL government to overtake DISARMED Americans. “Gun Control” doesn’t work, but NUTCASE control, PRISON Sentences (NOT the “HOTELS” the that the U.S. runs), and best of all . . . the GOOD guy with the gun. Team Trump and his allies 2020.
