Kids and guns:


Kids and guns:

Almost 1,300 children die and 5,790 are treated for gunshot wounds annually in America, a new study suggests. Here are the states with the most and least deaths.

{ What country other than America would put up with this? No wonder many peoples abroad think we love guns more then our own children. I have read there are more guns in the United States then people and its liable to stay that way with the number of children and adults who die every year from guns.}

Re: Kids and guns:


two points,

'fridge doors, children were being killed by getting trapped in refrigerators - very quickly laws were passed making that if not impossible then at least very difficult


Lawn darts a popular toy which caused a few deaths and injuries again very quickly laws were enacted and lawn darts (as originally made) were banned


So why do so many states not have laws which punish those which allow children access to guns?

Re: Kids and guns:


Then why not ban automobiles? By your own standard if it cannot be made 'ultimately, absolutely safe' then it must be removed from public access.

Misused or abused even the old standards my grandmother used to support clothes lines were used by children as 'spears' to javelin throw at each other. We beat on each other with make believe swords made of lumber, lots of things can be MADE more dangerous than actually are or left to the imagination or left out in the open for a child to access become a agent of death. Notably Pod laundry soap that children find candy like yet are still sold to this day.

Re: Kids and guns:


You are off topic. In the pre teen to late teen there is an excessive amount of gang related deaths by firearms INCLUDED within the child death stats, so is FULLY appropriate.

Re: Kids and guns:

OK so here are some stats which dont include gang related deaths

AS OF June 16, 2017, THIS YEAR:
50 KIDS KILLED
90 KIDS INJURED
9 ADULTS INJURED
1 ADULT KILLED
ALL BY KIDS

In May 2017, a month with 31 days, at least 37 children pulled a trigger and unintentionally shot themselves or another person.

Of the 37 incidents in May:

3 adults were injured
 24 children were injured
 10 children were killed

The youngest shooter was an 18-month-old in Tennessee who shot himself in the face



Of the 37 incidents in May, over half occurred in just five states:

Indiana: 4
 Louisiana: 4
 Florida: 3
 Tennessee: 3
 Texas: 3


compare with
between 2014 and 2016, Massachusetts, a state with safe storage laws, saw only 1 incident of a child fatally shot with an irresponsibly stored gun.

Re: Kids and guns:


Alright, with such a MASSIVE number(37), what of children running into a street hit by auto, poisoned by detergents, chemicals in those same states.

Then there are the children forgotten in autos, 20 deaths in 2013.
