Protect Children, Not Guns
Protect Children, Not Guns Report Logo SmallWe continue to lose far too many children in America to gun violence—nearly eight children or teens are killed by gun violence each day—235 each month.

Progress has been made over the years. Firearm deaths of children and teens have dropped from 15 a day in the peak year of 1994 to nearly eight a day in 2004. But eight children and teens dying each day is a moral outrage.
