AWFUL, even for Vox! This claim from Vox about gun violence belongs in the Shameless Agenda Hall of Fame

We’ve gotta admit, we are impressed (not in a good way) with the level of gymnastics it took for Vox to make this particular argument about gun violence.

Truth be told, you’d have to be really, really desperate to exploit the tragedy of suicide to push this argument but hey, what can we say, Vox is gonna Vox.

From Vox:

The rate of gun deaths in the US increased yet again in 2017, driven mostly by a rise in the number of suicides with a firearm.

Then this from the same story:

Nearly 40,000 people were killed by guns in 2017. Nearly 24,000 of those deaths, or almost 60 percent, were suicides, and more than 14,000, or nearly 37 percent, were homicides. The rest were accidents and deaths through legal interventions (such as police shootings).

This was pretty damn awful, even for Vox.
