1,000 Children Shot in A Year As US Gun Violence Soars

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article in The Times.

This is the first paragraph.

More than a thousand children under 12 have been killed or injured by gunfire in the United States this year.

In addition, 4,552 youths aged 12 to 17 were killed and injured.

No comment from me, can do justice to these figures.

  1. Same here – and it stuns me that people will buy a gun as a gift for their teenage child, or lend their own gun to the child.

  2. I partly blame all these American films, where shooting people dead is the norm.
