#EndFamilyFire is the new bad joke from the Brady Campaign.

I have been replying to people who post under the #endfamilyfire tag with the following:

Then I saw this post:

Resources? For a moment, I hoped that I was wrong and they actually and finally stepped up and started to provide real-life solutions like free gun locks.
I should have known better:

 This toolkit contains all the resources you need to extend the reach of this important campaign: PSAs, printable materials, social media assets, and helpful tips to engage your partners and your community.

Short answer: Nope. Just another useless campaign to clutter the waves with useless gun control crap. I did find this particular tweet ironic:

“Hey doc, I have a bad infection.”
“Here, read this pamphlet and post in social media. That should cure you. Your copayment will be $70.”

Yes, that stupid.

  1. Eight kids a day is 2,920 per annum. That’s roughly two-thirds the number of children under fourteen who die by unintentional drownings each year…

    And I never trust how these guys define “kids,” since time and again we’ve seen them issue reports or studies that count people well into their twenties as “kids.” So I’m going to assume their unsourced 2,920 per annum figure is off by at least 25%.

    1. You are assuming that their definition only includes accidental shootings by guns left unsecured at home. Do you want to bet they include stolen firearms that are later used in a crime involving the shooting of a minor? These people move goalposts like they were pole vaulters.

  2. In the common stats, “child” is defined as any person under 18. In the case of gun violence stats, the vast majority of “children” involved are teenage gang members. If those are to be counted at all, which is debatable, they certainly need to be a category of their own so they don’t mess up the stats of normal humans.

  3. 21 year old seven-time felon uses a revolver to commit suicide in his public housing apartment eight blocks from an adult educational facility at 3 AM?

    Child killed by fully semi-automatic rifle in school shooting.
