Holder's Lie on Guns

We already mentioned Eric Holder (soon to be US AG) and his virulent antipathy to guns.

Kopel adds a bit of info at Volokh:

He also promoted the factoid that "Every day that goes by, about 12, 13 more children in this country die from gun violence"--a statistic is true only if one counts 18-year-old gangsters who shoot each other as "children."

As usual, the biggest lies are disguised as statistics...
