Children & Firearms

From Sam Jacobs –

Although we hear that guns are the number one killer of children often, this information is untrue and steers conversations away from tangible solutions that will save the lives of young people. 

Our latest publication regarding children and firearms in the U.S. has critical information that every parent, lawmaker, and citizen should read.

For the sake of saving time, these are the quick facts you should be aware of:

  • 78% of all firearm-related deaths in the <1-17 age group are 14-17 year olds.
  • 70% of all children and teen firearm deaths occur in urban areas with more than 250,000 people.
  • Children, as defined, have a 0.0009% chance of dying from a firearm in the U.S.

If you’re as passionate about children and firearms as we are, please help spread the word so we can all start having conversations that matter.
