The gun violence that's a bigger threat to kids than school shootings
from The Atlantic via Route Fifty
Gun violence has killed nearly 1,200 children in the U.S. since the 2018 school massacre in Parkland, Florida. Few of these deaths became the focus of the nation’s attention. Maybe that’s because these killings were so mundane, so normal, in the 21st century U.S. While the rate of firearm related homicides has declined since its peak in the 1980s, gun violence is the second most common cause of death among children in the U.S., according to one recent study, and its role in youth fatalities has expanded significantly in recent years.
