Tom Arnold wasn’t amused earlier this month when Twitchy called him out on his tweet claiming that 80 percent of gun owners shoot themselves or a family member.
Maybe he just had his statistics confused, because now, weeks later, he’s claiming that 80 percent of NRA members shoot themselves or a family member. And of course he tweets this stuff to Dana Loesch to educate her.
no wonder 80% of NRA members shoot themselves or their friends & families

We weren’t aware the NRA or any federal department kept track of how many NRA members shot themselves, but, you know, if Arnold can get a cable show tracking down the Trump pee-pee tape, he can probably dig up some numbers that elude the rest of us.
Pretty sure this is bad math. https://t.co/EHwMw2sjDk

Could've sworn they used to call that "fuzzy math".

Common core math

If that were true then @TomArnold would have a lot fewer people to rage at.

80% hard to come to grips with those numbers that would mean out of 5,000,000 plus NRA members 4,000,000 have been or their families been shot, got to call BS on those numbers

You know something crazy, my brother bought a pistol and it didn't jump off the table and shoot any of us…I told him to return it, that it must be defective.

We've only got four family members out of twenty left now. It's sad, true, but we save on holiday dinners and can buy each other nicer guns.

That statistic might be 1/1024th correct, or not.

HA HA HA! I must be in the other 20%.

I have been a NRA member for more than 30 years and have never shot a single person
— Ronnie Pitcock (@ronniepitcock) December 27, 2018
I am very good friends with 30 members and none of them has ever shot anybody. So that means there are 120 other members that have a 100% success rate.

68.2% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

So the star of Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure is a complete whack job AND can’t do math? I’m shocked ?

He was also in “True Lies,” so …
An actual media outlet gave that guy an actual show

Gotta love this guy, he makes my day with his eternal brilliance

@TomArnold 80% of what Tom says is inaccurate and the other 20% is incorrect.
— Jeanie ? (@exceptionalizm) December 27, 2018
Not bad math. It’s 100% made up which makes it a lie.
— T. F. Williams (@TaskForceLogic) December 27, 2018
It’s not bad math. It’s liberal math. Very liberal with numbers.
— ThinkDeep(R)? (@thatzaman) December 27, 2018
Tom probably got the numbers from CNN or MSNBC!!
— Gunny_Mark (@Gunny_Mark) December 27, 2018
Why is he doubling down on this stat? He used it before and got roasted! ?
— HeathersCheddar (@HeathersCheddar) December 27, 2018
Because it’s his mission to take down the NRA, and Trump … he doesn’t have time to run the numbers twice.
