From the Brady Bunch...

Protect Children, Not Guns documents the high toll of gun violence on our society:

  • The number of children and teens killed by guns in 2005 would fill 120 public school classrooms of 25 students each;
  • A Black male has a 1 in 72 chance of being killed by a firearm by his 30th birthday while a While male has a 1 in 344 chance;
  • California led with 474 gun deaths among children and teens in 2005; Texas, was second with 264, followed by Florida with 148, Pennsylvania with 138 and Illinois with 130.
  • Since 1979, firearms killed 104,419 children and teens.
The number of children and teens killed by guns in 2005 would fill 120 public school classrooms of 25 students each;

Then let their parents protect them with a great equalizer - a gun.

A Black male has a 1 in 72 chance of being killed by a firearm by his 30th birthday while a While male has a 1 in 344 chance;

But....there's a good chance that a LARGE percentage of those men have chosen to be gangsters and drug dealers and that's why their in harms way. They've CHOSEN that lifestyle. Not ALL but a LOT, I'm sure.


California led with 474 gun deaths among children and teens in 2005; Texas, was second with 264, followed by Florida with 148, Pennsylvania with 138 and Illinois with 130.

So, three states with that have cities in them that have the most lax penalties for crime and two states with the largest populations are the ones they chose to get their stats? Talk about using the stats in your favor.


Since 1979, firearms killed 104,419 children and teens.

What percentage of the total population in that age range over that time span is that?? like .001, maybe less? Now figure out how many children were killed in that time frame in car accidents, swimming pools, prescription drug overdoses, and electrocution.


Please, call
Ed Shelleby at 202.662.3602 to ask him why they skew the truth to their ends? What will it solve??? If you disarm ALL of the law abiding.....what do you have? A nation run by thugs and their criminal counterparts. You decide which portion is the government.
