A new study on childhood firearm injuries in the U.S. finds that nearly 1300 children die and 5790 are treated for gunshot wounds each year.
This is the most comprehensive analysis of firearm-related deaths and injuries among US children to date, examining overall patterns, patterns by intent, trends over time, state-level patterns, and precipitating circumstances. These findings underscore the need for scientifically sound solutions.
In addition, here is an editorial about the study: Confronting the Firearm Injury Plague
