Many gun control advocates seem to have no morals or scruples when it comes to using false statistics to promote their anti-American and anti-Second Amendment agenda. Recently, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said 93 million Americans die every day due to guns. That would leave the US devoid of people in just 3 ½ days. Now, a reporter for Newsweek has been caught using false figures in his post supporting gun control.

Writer Ryan Bort has been caught red handed promoting phony “gun violence” statistics in a recent #FakeNews story for (the failing) Newsweek, claiming that guns are now the third leading cause of death for children. The story seems to be based around a report by a journal called Pediatrics, but Bort never actually provides a link to the report that he continually references. Instead, he gives links to the CDC and another organization called National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), which the Pediatrics article supposedly sourced for their report.

There’s just one problem for Mr. Bort; His numbers are all wrong. And it’s not even close.

He says that “Data on fatal gun deaths were drawn from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Vital Statistics System database, and data on non-fatal gun injuries were from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s National Electronic Injury Surveillance System” so we’ll use those data sets instead of Bort’s #AlternativeFacts. The actual CDC report from 2014, the most recent available, can be found HERE…

Ironically, these same type of morally devoid liberals, are among the same group of hypocrites that label many truthful and factual conservative posts as fake news. They don’t want the public to hear or know the truth while at the same time they try to feed the public their lies. Hopefully, this intentional fabrication by Newsweek’s Ryan Bort will lose his job for distorting the facts to promote his personal liberal agenda.
