This is much more telling than people realize. Mayors Against Illegal
Guns (MAIG), or more accurately Criminals Against Guns (since a high
percentage of the mayors involved are criminals) did a little reading
of what they purported to be victims of gun violence. What they
actuall did was just read a list of people killed by firearms,
regardless of the situation.
Why is this so telling, do you ask? Or even a surprise? Well, it
isn't a surprise really. However, what it exposes is how groups such
as MAIG balloon numbers. This is the thing about fooling the public
that is generally uneducated in such matters. I can give you all the
numbers for people killed in a firearm homicide. What I can also do
is not exclude numbers of those where the homicide was ruled
justified, since it is still in the same broad category of the
definition. Or, I can say "all these people were killed by guns"
neglecting to say:
oh yeah, this was probably a terriorist killed by the guns of law enforcement.
Proof their numbers are fake or they just don't care enough to vet them.
