More Kids Suffer Firearm Injuries Than Researchers Previously Believed, Study Finds
In those eight years, they counted nearly 186,000 children, from newborns to 19-year-olds, who had been treated for firearm injuries.
Sorry. Again, 18 and 19 yr olds aren't 'children' by any definition unless you're deliberately trying to fudge the numbers to push an agenda. If they're involved in a gang, then it's arguable those 16 & 17 yr olds aren't innocent victims either.
63 percent of the firearm injuries were intentional – from homicides, suicide attempts, or encounters with law enforcement.And instead of focusing on the larger number, they focus on the smaller number of accidents, a number that has been decreasing thanks to efforts by the NRA's Eddie Eagle and other safety courses.
I'll lay money that when this 'study' is published, it shows it received funding from the Joyce Foundation.
