Biden Claimed ‘Guns Are the No. 1 Killer of Children’–True if You Count 18 and 19-Year-Olds as ‘Children’

    He said, “Guns are the number one killer of children.”

    Biden’s claim is only true if you count 18- and 19-year-olds as children.

    On May 26, 2022, FOX News noted that CDC figures show firearm-related deaths of people ages 0-19 totaled 4,368 in 2020, while motor vehicle deaths for the same age range totaled 4,036.

    However, if you do a custom search on the CDC numbers so that you are limiting the category of “children” to those 0-17, i.e., those below voting age, then the data completely flips.

    The number of firearm-related deaths for children aged 0-17 was 2,281 in 2020, while the number of motor vehicle deaths for the same ages was 2,503.

    Biden did not mention that even in the expanded age range of 0-19, CDC numbers show unintentional motor vehicle deaths were 27 times higher than unintentional firearm-related deaths.
