One child or teen dies or is injured from guns every 30 minutes. The number of children under five killed by guns in 2010 was higher than the number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty that same year.
See this report: Protect Children, Not Guns:
Children are among the nearly 20,000 American youths that are killed or injured by guns every year. But what most people don’t realize is that 60% of these gun deaths take place in a home.
It is time to spread the word that we have the power to prevent these tragedies from happening.
