CDC Says Guns Kill And Wound 7,000 Children Per Year

According to a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year in the U.S. nearly 1,300 children die from guns, with black boys being struck down most often. More than half of the deaths are homicides, 6 percent are unintentional, and 38 percent are suicides. CDC researchers also found that almost 6,000 kids are wounded by guns each year. Katherine Fowler, who works in the division of violence prevention said, “Pediatric firearm injuries and deaths are an important public health problem in the United States, contributing substantially each year to premature death, illness and disability of children.”
