Default Guns are the second leading killer of kids, after cars

So let's ban driving so we can protect our young. More than half the problem is solved.
Now toss in the suicides, and other accidents and look at the numbers.


Guns are the second leading killer of kids, after cars

Guns are the second leading killer of U.S. kids, after car crashes, according to a new report published Wednesday.

Nearly twice as many kids died from gun injuries in 2016 as died from cancer, the study by a team at the University of Michigan found. The gun fatality rate for U.S. children is 36 times higher than the rate in other developed nations, according to the analysis.

……………………………………………….. Skipped Some

Cunningham's team found that just over 20,000 children died in the U.S. last year, most of them from injuries of some sort. They found 4,074 children died in road deaths, 3,143 from firearms and 1,853 from cancer.

"Motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death for children and adolescents, representing 20 percent of all deaths; firearm-related injuries were the second leading cause of death, responsible for 15 percent of deaths," they wrote.

First, gang-members attribute may, if not most, of these...If Lefty cities would crackdown on gangs, you'd solve most gun issues (which is what they DON'T want, so they lets these gangs hang around to kill more "kids")...

Second, there's a big difference between guns obtained legally which killed a kid through negligence or accident, and illegal guns used for the direct purpose of killing...This "study" does not differentiate...

Nor does any I read so far... way as each is bent to the slant of the current provider...

Dems …. do these studies. .

Yet this study does show each death isn't because of some school shooting.

There is no way in Hell any country, America included, will be made into a "nanny be safe" nation. As long as bad guys do whatever the hell it takes to do their bad deeds, the only ones punished will be the good guys. Go screw yourselves and your stupid anti-gun laws, snowflakes!

Fight crime. Shoot back!

I will take exception to the headline as it is written. To my knowledge, a gun has never killed a single individual in this country. A gun is simply a tool to be used by the person that possesses it. I know that none of my guns have ever killed nor injured anyone. They just sit there in the gun case and stay in place, waiting for me to put them to use at my discretion.

Actually this statistic is only true if you separated the leading cause of children deaths, DISEASE, into separate categories.

https://www.cdc.gov/injury/wisqars/p...p_2016-508.pdf

If you add up all the charted diseases as a group it beats out guns every in age group. The comparison is even less if you include unintentional injuries. At which point homicides are way down the list.

Once again proving that the beauty of statistics is that one can torture them until they say what you want to hear. But it is always interesting to see how the left is always willing to do whatever it takes "for the children" unless it comes to the subject of "CHOICE."

In the USA this same year, there were an average of 4000 abortions per day topping any yearly number of any one category of any age group on the chart.

Anti-gun statistics stink of snowflake. Nothing else to do about it but ignore the weenies. Fight every damned anti-gun law that pops up!

Lets just track who buys a gun and if they have mental problems that cause them to be violent prevent them from buying them.
if you have epilepsy you cant get a drivers license until you have proof you have been seizure free for two years
why do our brains fall out when it comes to guns?

Yeah, what could possibly go wrong? Just ask the citizens of Germany in the 1930's how that worked out for them.

You prove time and again the old adage, "Those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it".
