>People are getting shot by toddlers on a weekly basis this year
In a nation of 300 million people, if something happens on a weekly basis then it's got a 1 in 100,000 chance of happening to you in your entire lifetime.
Whenever the "think of the children" anti-gun argument comes up I always quote the same stats:
>among all child accidental deaths nationally, firearms were involved in 1.1 percent, compared to motor vehicles (41 percent), suffocation (21 percent), drowning (15 percent), fires (8 percent), pedal cycles (2 percent), poisoning (2 percent), falls (1.9 percent), environmental factors (1.5 percent), and medical mistakes (1 percent)
but nobody ever wants to ban swimming pools for some reason.
Pulled randomly off google, probably from some shit biased rag that got them from a more reputable source. I checked with the actual government data once and I know the 1% gun accidents vs. 99% other accidents is real.
