    This just in from Fox News:

    A gun control group that sought to raise awareness to their cause at a New Hampshire rally by reading off the names of 4,500 people killed by firearms since the Connecticut school shootings drew jeers when they included the name of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, according to a report.

    Supporters of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns movement held the rally on Tuesday, in Concord. And while it is true that Tsarnaev was shot by police -- and then run over by his fleeing brother -- during a gun battle four days after carrying out the deadly terror attack, several in attendance questioned including him as a "victim" of gun violence, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.

    “He's a terrorist,” several gun rights protesters in attendance shouted, according to the paper.

    God help us.

    ANY mayor on that list are simply Hippocrates! We all know Bloomberg is just a released mental patient who got elected.

    As they said on The Five, "they should be called, Mayors Against Guns" based on how they use "data gathering" instead of FACTS.

    The FBI homicide stats include all the police action and civilian justified homicide nationwide.
    When the anti gunners toss out the figures they fail to include that information because they want gun owners to look like crazed killers of innocent victims.

    That is not unusual. When gun control advocates cite "gun violence victim" statistics, they usually include every person killed by a gun, regardless of whether it was murder, justified homicide, accident, or suicide. Suicide is the big one, accounting for approximately two-thirds of gun deaths in this country.

    You know what they say about the truthfulness of statistics...
