    Same with the Safety Council. There was a time when they clearly and concisely posted accidental deaths involving guns, even broken down by age category, but last time I looked you had to try to sift the number out from among conflated stats. Clearly it was an orchestrated attempt at deception. They even had a fairly clever rationalization to accompany the conflation. They may be dishonest as hell, but they arenít stupid.

    This seems to fall under “figures don’t lie but liars can figure”.
