The CDC has long been known for their anti-gun agenda. They oppose open carry, concealed carry and must other gun rights. They fully support the safe storage craze, which only leaves homeowners defenseless against intruders.

Therefore, it’s not surprising that the CDC over inflated their report on unintentional firearm deaths for 2014. In previous years, accidental gun deaths had been declining and then suddenly thy jumped in 2014 according to the CDC.

Dr. John Lott found the error in January 2016 and reported it to the CDC, but it has taken them this long to finally correct their mistake, bringing the number of accidental gun deaths in line with what was expected.

(The Truth About Guns) – In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) made an error in the number of fatal firearms accidents they reported that occurred in 2014. It was so large that it was obvious.

The number of fatal firearm accidents had been falling significantly, but in 2014, they suddenly and inexplicably jumped by over 25%. Most of the increase was in one state, Tennessee. Dr. John Lott noticed the error in January of 2016, and brought it to the attention of the CDC.


In January 2016, Dr. John Lott contacted the CDC to alert them to a mistake in their numbers for 2014 on accidental gun deaths. The total was clearly a 100 larger than it actually was (the error arose because of mistakes in Tennessee’s data, and the mistake was so large it noticeably impacted the national number accidental deaths that year, raising the reported number from 486 to 586). Finally, in October 2016, the CDC acknowledged their error, but they never corrected the data on the website. This error is so large that it noticeably affects even five-year averages in accidental gun deaths. Unfortunately, since they never made the corrections, others are making mistakes when they use the data…

You know what’s going to happen now, don’t you? Most anti-gun fanatics who are pushing very dangerous safe storage laws will continue to use the CDC’s inflated numbers for 2014 to push their legislation. What would be interesting would be to see the statistics of home invasions before and after safe storage laws.
