On Thursday Democrat presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren tweeted a video clip in which she pledged “executive action in every corner” for gun control.

Warren said, “40,000 Americans died last year from gun violence.” Warren’s claim is actually a loose reference to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention numbers for 2017–the most recent numbers–which show 39,773 people died in a firearm-related death.

However, Warren did not mention that nearly two-thirds of those deaths were due to suicide, not “gun violence.”

In fact, the surge in the gun deaths was the result of a surge in suicides. And the Chicago Tribune’s Steven Chapman notes that “the increase was actually greater for the non-firearm suicide rate than for the firearm suicide rate.”

You’re right. Better turn tail and run away with the rest of the cowards
I agree. Damned cowards want more elbow room for their money, friendlier neighbors, a lower cost of living with a higher quality of life and a less stressful commute. And on top all that they actually want their voice to be heard and make a difference. Bastards. Not just cowards. Bastards.
