Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America has launched an online store where they are selling gun control t-shirts for Christmas.
The t-shirts–which are also affiliated with Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety–have a likeness of an American flag and the caption: “Americans are 20 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than people in other developed countries.”
According to the online store index, the “20x more likely” shirt is $30, and this can be complimented with a “Future Gun Sense Voter” baby onesee for $24 or a classic white “Moms Demand Action” t-shirt for $26.
But before giving a gift that claims “Americans are 20 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than people in other developed countries,” Christmas shoppers may want to read through a Harvard-published study titled, “Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” As Breitbart News previously reported, this study compared murder states in the US with murder stats in other developed countries–like Russia–and found that the murder rate in the U.S. was about one-fourth the murder rate in Russia, although Russia had a handgun ban and strict controls on long guns.
All these murders are not committed with guns, but gun control opens the door for lesser weapons to be used because criminals know citizens cannot fight back.
By comparing the US with continental Europe, the study shows “the mantra that more guns mean more deaths and that fewer guns, therefore, mean fewer deaths,” is wrong.
