Maybe if President Biden actually knew the facts around firearm deaths, he would realize that it is not a “national health crisis”, he is making a crisis up to justify his actions.
In 2017, six in ten gun-related deaths in the U.S. were suicides (23,854), while 37% were murders (14,542), according to the CDC. The remainder were unintentional (486), involved law enforcement (553), or had undetermined circumstances (338).
More people are killed by hands and feet and other objects than rifles.. in 2019, 364 people were killed with rifles (of all kinds) while blunt objects like bats and hammers killed 397 people, more than rifles! (From FBI Report “Crime in the United States 2019)
Now if he held a Rose Garden press conference on what he is doing to help MENTAL HEALTH in the US that might actually help more people than fictional firearms issues.
But let’s not let facts get in the way.
