Former Chief of Staff to President Barack Obama and former Democrat Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel is infamous for admitting, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
For more than two years now, the Biden administration has lived by that dubious motto.
And now, President Joe Biden just got caught red handed spreading fake stats meant to steal your Second Amendment rights.
For decades one of the top priorities of Democrats has been to disarm American citizens – despite the right to bear arms being specifically outlined in the Bill of Rights.
The Left and their public relations arm in Big Media jump on any shooting that fits their narrative and exploit the tragedy to score political points.
Democrats aren’t known for letting the facts get in the way of their preferred narrative.
Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and now Joe Biden haven’t been afraid to manipulate statistics to achieve their gun-grabbing ends.
But President Joe Biden just got his hand caught in the cookie jar repeating a line about gun deaths he’s already been fact-checked on.
While completely ignoring the rioting on the streets of Chicago to instead focus on the shooting of Kansas City teen Ralph Yarl, President Biden once again made his case for banning firearms, and he once again lied to make his unconstitutional case sound better.
Guns are the leading killer of children in America, and the numbers are rising.
What has our nation come to when children cannot attend a birthday party without fear? When parents have to worry every time their kids walk out the door to school, the movie theater, or to the park?

“Guns are the leading killer of children in America, and the numbers are rising,” the Commander-in-Chief tweeted. “What has our nation come to when children cannot attend a birthday party without fear? When parents have to worry every time their kids walk out the door to school, the movie theater, or to the park?”
The sitting President has been using this line in his talking points last summer.
It’s been fact-checked to be false time and time again by Fox News and Brietbart.
According to CDC numbers, when talking about minors — so children under the age of 18 – there were 2,281 gun-involved deaths in 2020.
That number counts mass shootings, domestic incidents, accidents and suicides.
For the same age group, again CDC numbers show 2,503 children were killed in car crashes.
Biden has to raise the age range to 0-19 to get gun-related deaths to top 2,503.
However, if you raise the motor vehicle related deaths to the age of 19 as well, death by car out paces death at the hands of a gun by 27 times.
The numbers from Biden’s own administration make it clear he’s manipulating the facts to lie to the American people with the aim of taking away their ability to defend themselves.
And that’s before you factor in abortion.
A PBS report found there were 930,000 unborn children killed via abortion in 2020 – that’s 408 times more innocent lives taken at the hands of forceps than firearms.
But the facts don’t help Biden and the Democrat party control American lives through abortion and gun control.
The fact is, the shootings Biden is using for political points are happenings since his supposed “game changing” gun-grabbing legislation passed last year.
Gun control doesn’t save lives because criminals don’t follow laws – so the government is only disarming law abiding citizens, it’s that simple.
However, the Supreme Court of the United States absolutely saved the lives of many thousands of children when it returned abortion laws to individual states and red states enacted abortion restrictions.
