I think 100% of us here are absolutely not surprised. Thanks for the link.
One thing I would point out is that since the media has started its anti gun propaganda campaign starting with the Clintonistas the public has become far more educated on firearms.
I’m sure that has an effect on reducing accidental deaths.
Now we need to educate the general public that firearms are just tools and not evil; and gun owners are not toothless backwoods hicks the anti gun crowd is convinced we are.

The so-called Mainstream Media are actively promoting themselves as the official mouthpiece for the liberals, left-wingers, socialists and other idiots. There are a few organizations that attempt to report a fair and unbiased fashion, but they are subject to retribution from the other side. The left is also very schooled in propaganda and selective topics and correspondents for manipulating the “available” information. Hatchet jobs, verbal attacks and so on are so common it is similar to Truth or Dare game.
