Charlie Rangel lies and states 'millions of kids being shot down by assault weapons' (VIDEO)

In an appearance this morning on MSNBC, New York Congressman Charlie Rangel was asked his thoughts on the assault weapons ban being dropped from the Senate bill. Congressman Rangel stated that it was his belief the NRA’s money and influence has scoured American politics. He went on to claim that “millions of kids” are being killed by assault weapons.

I’m ashamed to admit it but its politics and its money, The NRA has taken this position, there is no reason, there is no foundation. There is no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting.

But you know it’s really basically the absence of the voices of good people. I cannot believe that politicians are afraid of the NRA, if they thought for one minute that the churches and the synagogue and the priest and the ministers were saying “Hey! Do the right thing and we have your back.”

We’re talking about millions of kids dying — being shot down by assault weapons, were talking about handguns easier in the inner cities, to get these guns in the inner cities, than to get computers. This is not just a political issue, it’s a moral issue and so when we condemn the NRA we should not ignore the fact that a lot of people that have taken moral positions have been solid on this big one.

“Millions of kids” is an extraordinary overstatement of facts and reality to say the least. FBI crime data shows that in 2010 8,583 people (kids included) were killed in homicides. The great majority of those homicides were committed by handguns.
