Kid Shootings:
Every year, almost 3,200 children and teens die from gunfire, and another 17,450 are injured.

And Statistic of the Month
The firearms used by American youth ages 19 and younger in 90% of firearm suicide attempts and completions, and in 72% unintentional firearm deaths and injuries, were stored in the residence of the victim, their relative, or their friend. On average, 68% of suicides for youth ages 15-24 are committed with guns.
