Dem Sen. Chris Murphy got this ‘daily gun death’ stat from the ‘Dept of Disingenuous Facts’

Nice try pal:

What Murphy did was took the gun-related homicide figure, which is about 30 per day (according to the CDC), and added to it the number of suicides-by-gun, which is nearly double the homicide number (even the Huffington Post understood the difference). So, among that average of 30 homicide deaths-by-gun per day, how many happen in the “gun free zones” that Murphy wants to create more of? Oddly enough the gov’t doesn’t keep solid stats on that. Go figure.
