Defendable gun bill

Somehow, a pro-gunnie (Chris Cox, actually) broke through the WaPo’s filters:

The House Commerce appropriations bill states that firearm trace information can and will be shared with any federal, state, local or international law enforcement agency in the course of a bona fide criminal investigation or prosecution. While this provision may not please New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg or The Post, 325,000 Fraternal Order of Police members and other rank-and-file law enforcement officers support it.

The editorial also said that studies have indicated that child gun safety education programs don’t work. It’s astonishing to hear anyone make the case against education. Gun safety education programs, such as NRA’s Eddie Eagle, have been pivotal in decreasing fatal firearms accidents for children 15 and under from 550 in 1975 to 56 in 2003 — down 90 percent. We take issue with your higher statistic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that classifies people 18 to 20 years old as children. The National Rifle Association invests millions of dollars to develop and teach gun safety while others merely pay lip service. The NRA will continue to work with and support rank-and-file law enforcement as they successfully combat crime.

Wow. They printed it. I am surprised.

    Thats excellent.

    However, there is an area that needs further exploration . . . . what about all the 16 and 17 year olds. What are the statistics for them?

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
