      18 TIMES more children are killed by accidental suffocation, not 18% more.

    4. Good catch John. Thanks.

    5. We can take the guns away from the children. But we can’t take the pillows away from them. Think hard and confess, 1% less deaths amogst children if we just ban guns!

    6. no more pillows to lay they wittle heads on.

    7. This just reports unintentional deaths..What about intentional deaths?
