Video: Bloomberg Claims Americans Are '22 Times More Likely To Get Killed" ...

•, Steve Watson

Democratic Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg made several dubious claims during a CNN townhall on Wednesday night, in an effort to push an extreme gun control agenda he has long sought to implement.

Without citing any specific statistics or studies, Bloomberg, who is surrounded 24/7 by armed guards, claimed that Americans are much more at risk of injury and death if they keep a gun at home.

"You don't want to have guns. If you have a gun in your house you're something like 22 times as likely to get killed with a gun." Bloomberg claimed.

"There's domestic violence, there's children playing, there's accidents." he added.

Despite Bloomberg's claim, a study from his own Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found no "clear association between firearm restrictions for domestic abusers and reduced fatal mass shootings."

Bloomberg went on to jump to conclusions regarding a shooting at Molson Coors in Milwaukee, despite the fact that no detailed information about the gunman had been released at the time.
