Equivocation: An example

Child gun deaths as common in rural as urban areas

For over a hundred years the progressives have worked diligently to undermine the belief systems of America. The tactic of choice is equivocation. Here is the latest example:

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Children and teenagers living in the most-rural parts of the U.S. are as likely to die by gun violence as those in big cities, a new study finds.

Okay, the equivalence is gun. The difference is in the rural areas, it's accidents mostly and a few suicides. In the urban areas, it's criminal activity. How's that for equivalence?

In Chicago, never a day goes by when there is not a report of some innocent teenager being cut down by gang bangers defending their turf. And we see images on TV of weeping mothers, and pastors and elders lamenting the state of affairs.

I have a question for you, Chicago. You have been under Progressive governance for a hundred years. How's it working out for you?

I do not buy this study. I grew up in a rural area and am only aware of three gun deaths, they were all suicide. I knew of only one gun accident and it was not fetal. It seems like they cooked the books somehow.

I tend to agree with Trestin. I do of several gun deaths however in hunting accidents with young hunters not waiting to identify their target.
