Protecting Guns, Sacrificing (Some) Children

by , The Daily Censored, December 24, 2012

excerpt quoted from Children’s Defense fund:

“By any standards of human and moral decency, children in America are under assault, and by international standards, America remains an unparalleled world leader in gun deaths of children and teens—a distinction we shamefully and immorally choose! The most recent analysis of data from 23 high-income countries reported that 87 percent of children under age 15 killed by guns in these nations lived in the United States. And the U.S. gun homicide rate for teens and young adults 15 to 24 was 42.7 times higher than the combined gun homicide rate for that same age group in the other countries [emphasis in original].” (p. 5; also see chart on p. 31)
