Facts don’t fit your story? Just distort them CSGV-style

Recently the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Civilian Disarmament group known as CSGV tweeted a sneaky infographic that that falsely claims Chicago doesn't have anywhere near the highest murder rate in the US.

The misleading infographic, created by PAGV (Parents Against Gun Violence), another Civilian Disarmament group, uses Metropolitan Statistical Areas(MSAs) to calculate their homicide rates. The problem with this approach is that MSAs are not cities– for example Chicago's MSA includes part of Wisconsin- and about 6.8 million people who don't live in “Chicago, IL”.

Facts about Gun Violence are abundant- but the facts never support gun control.
