That argument is kind of old and tired.
Prove it?

Those are just American children btw, so those are the ones we are trying to save here. Statistics from the CDC and verifiable. No blog opinions. Links to source data in the link I provided.

Taking away the guns (if that was possible) takes away the gun violence. You can't shoot someone without a gun. It doesn't take away the potential for violence, of course. But no guns equals no gun violence, correct. And a reasonable assumption is that fewer guns equals less gun violence. That is achievable.

How about this one. 800 child gun suicides per year in the US. We could affect that number. And a far greater number of accidental shootings could be impacted at the same time.

Children. With rights to life and liberty.
