US political leadership has reneged on every promise to save the lives of helpless children, resulting in the deaths of ~20,000 every day from preventable poverty. Since the US ongoing lies to care for children at the 1990 World Summit for Children, nearly 200,000,000 children have died in prolonged agony far more painful than death by gunshot.
US psychopathy with deaths of children literally ten million times more than this recent twenty definitively refutes their claims to care for children, and invalidates their motive for gun control as caring for innocent lives.
Despite the US promise to save these innocent children’s lives being 0.7% of our income, and US public willingness to contribute up to 10% of our income to help the poor, US “leadership” never admit their dishonored promise to American families and children. Read my Economics of ending poverty  for complete documentation.
The total number of human beings dead from preventable poverty since the World Summit for Children is conservatively greater than all deaths from all wars, murders, and acts of violence in recorded human history.
As you may know, US direct causality of war-murders is 20-30 million  since reneging on treaty law to never use armed attack as foreign policy.
You will have to read about these facts from alternative media. The six corporations that dominate US media provided this tragic-comic “coverage” on the World Summit for Children  and this kind of“coverage” of wars, debt, and poverty  that ongoingly kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions.
The obvious policy response from Americans should be to disarm and arrest the criminal 1% who actively kill in unlawful wars, passively kill through debt and poverty, and then pretend to care about children as they demand to disarm an American public aware of their crimes and lies.
