    Saving the Children

    Saving the Children

    By Gerard Valentino

    A new study by the American Academy of Pediatrics estimates that 24,000 children are injured in shopping-cart accidents every year. A staggering 85% of those children are under five years of age. That dwarfs the number of children who were injured with guns last year.

    It appears that your child has a much better chance of being hurt in an accident involving a shopping cart than with a gun.

    Yet, gun control activists continue to target guns as an evil that must be eradicated. At the same time they ignore the risk to children created by much more common items like shopping carts, swimming pools, and even 5-gallon buckets.

    A staggering 85%
    the instant i see a phrase like that i just stop reading and move on , imho there will be no good info among the hyperbole so its not worth my time to even look at the rest of it LOL
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    Doesn't matter what the heck else kills kids - ''the gun'' will always have blame heaped on it.

    It is all about agenda, not facts.

    So... Does anybody really believe any of these so called studies? You can probably get better info from Dear Abby.

    WOW, we all rode in shopping carts with our MOMMIES and we turned out ok. The problem is that parents leave kids unattended in shopping carts, swimming pools, inside parked cars, etc. That lack of supervision or caring is the root of the trouble.

    heck we used to race in shopping carts around the parking lot and the store and never got hurt!......stupid people stupid cart handlers and just plain stupid people who let their kids do what they want instead of making them sit in there like they should. easy really take control of your kids not let the kids take control of you.

    We need government intervention I say. Those evil shopping carts should only be used by government trained and licensed individuals.
