Idiot firearms quote...

Some poor kid in Italy had a fatal firearms accident while on a hunting trip, the nature of which is hard to figure out from the information at the linked article.

The Newsweek reporter, as part of her story, contacted the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence, CSGV's sister org, for some quotes and got this whopper:
Accidental shootings are one of the most common causes of death and kill nearly 500 people in the United States every year, according to the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence.
One of the MOST COMMON? 

So don't come at me with that "one of the most common causes" nonsense. There are more than twice as many fatal accidents every year with skates and skateboards than there are with guns.
