Interesting stuff - apparently firearms are involved in almost 20% of children's deaths from other than natural causes.

Was that what you wanted to demonstrate, Phillip?

Phillip's making the case for better control of handguns. Perhaps mandated safes and trigger locks and such, rather like how autos must have bumpers and parking brakes and such. Common sense stuff that's easy enough to do.

So 3.7% of deaths of young people between the ages of 0 and 19 involve firearms.

So what is your point, Phillip? That this number is negligible and acceptable in the interest of Lberty? If so, say so.

How about for children between the ages of say 19 and 35?

One could easily make a case to discount half the population in the study.....say kids younger than 8 or ten. How many of them have ready access to firearms? But taken as it is, 3.7 percent...... that's just a rounding error?

Those who worship at The Temple Of The Gun ask that you take them on faith, don'cha know.
