CNN’s Deplorable Sally Kohn Lies About “Children” Killed With Guns

CNN commentator and activist Sally Kohn took the lowest of the low roads today in an op-ed calling for more gun control. Kohn claims that CNN host Ashleigh Banfield made the claim that “10,000 children are killed by guns every year,” and so—of coursewe need more gun laws.

Recently, my CNN colleague Mel Robbins made a startling point. Robbins was on “Legal View” to discuss the case of an 11-year-old who shot and killed an 8-year-old neighbor when host Ashleigh Banfield noted that 10,000 children are killed by guns every year. Robbins was taken aback by the statistic. Then Robbins pointed out that when the government found out that a certain type of crib resulted in 32 children dying over 10 years, what did the government do about the cribs? “Outlawed them,” she said. But 10,000 kids die because of guns every single year and we can’t pass even the most measly common sense safety laws?
