Did you know that 10,000 children are injured or killed by guns each year in the U.S.? Injuries from firearms send an estimated 7,000 kids to the ER every year, and an additional 3,000 children die from gunshot wounds before they can get to a hospital, according to a new study published in the journal Pediatrics.
These numbers are staggering! Gun violence in the United States results in tens of thousands of deaths and injuries annually.
There must be some talk about gun control in America, especially when children are dying due to guns.
