And that's just the women who are spiritually scarred by their sins.

Abortion KILLS 3000 children every day ... and the demonic left cheers it on.

What percentage of these “children” are gang bangers?

This is the pertinent part:

“A national database of patients younger than 20 who were admitted to hospitals in 2009 shows that boys represented nearly 90% of the total...the rate of gunshot-related hospitalizations for African American males was 10 times that of white males.

Blacks ages 15 to 19 were 13 times more likely than their white peers to be injured by gunfire.”

IOW, it has nothing to do with accidents. It has a great deal to do with criminal activity in the inner cities. It is sad, but it has nothing to do with law-abiding people owning guns.

And this:

“Victims ages 15 to 19 made up 84% of the children brought to the hospital with gunshot wounds, and two-thirds of those injuries were attributed to assault.”

OK...so guns are used by criminals to attack people regardless of age. What does that have to do with me, or my kids?

The study is a profound condemnation of “black culture”.

The LATimes can’t even cover that up. Though they don’t mention it of course.

Exactly...It has everything to do with young gang members shooting or getting shot by other gang members.

Melissa Healy should take up a profession other than journalism, she’s a hack.

I’ll bet most of the “children” are gang members, but many are victims of domestic violence.

How many of these 18 year old ghetto babies are gang bangers killed by other gang bangers? How many of totally innocent 21 year old black angles are killed by cops because the pulled a gun or knife on them?? How many of these walk on water kids were killed while committing a crime by an armed citizen?? How many of these 16 year old need to be citizens are killing each others over drugs? How many of these so called kids are killed by white people? How many are killed by darker skinned people?

About now is when they figure out that the facts don't fit what they are trying to sell so the get all pissed off and start yelling "racism." When they get all done with their rant ask them the same questions over and over again until they answer with the true numbers.

You can post the BS numbers but it does not sound like you know the truth and facts.

Yeah, and unemployment is only 7 percent.

So are we supposed to childproff the world?

Nearly every violent gun crime is stopped by another gun.

This may sound harsh, but freedom costs.

In other words, 98 +/- % of those “children” are Amish gang-bangers.

stats say it’s mostly black males..children are considered 19 and under

http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2014/01/22/peds.2013-1809.abstract

the stats don’t make sense...if 7391 were due to firearm related injuries. (and I am assuming) 270 were suicides and 4559 were due to assaults, what were the other 2522, pain in the ass innocent bystanders ?

plus the suicide stats in general don’t make sense.stats say it

Blacks ages 15 to 19 were 13 times more likely than their white peers to be injured by gunfire. And 70% of all black children hospitalized for gun injury (compared with 32% of all white children injured by firearms) were classified as victims of assault.

Just to be extra safe you should get rid of all your furniture. Falling furniture sends 500 children a day to the ER.

And remove the toilet seat, boys can be horribly injured and traumatized by falling toilet seats.

Lib media has been trying to whip up hysteria over child deaths from guns for decades. Maybe half a century. While the occasional tragic death of a child occurs due to idiot adults who are not responsible, most “child” related gun deaths are gang-related. And of course, the media never publishes stories of armed, law-abiding citizens stopping crime. I’ll bet most people think the number of crimes stopped thanks to a legally armed citizen is about 100. The actual number is over a million a year. Maybe more.
