Ideologs don't need honest facts. The CDC manipulates the numbers by including 18-19 year olds whose deaths are mostly based on gang or drug violence

Barack Obama Falsely Claims Guns Are Number One Killer of Children

But Breitbart News dug into the CDC figures and ascertained that the only way to make the claim work is to count 18 and 19-year-olds as children. But if one does a custom search on the CDC website to adjust the category of children to include only those aged 0-17, only those below voting and military age, then the outcome completely flips.

One sees that 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.
