I' m willing to bet unintentional poisoning dwarfs firearm deaths in kids...

I got numbers around 1300 after googling it a bit.

By academic curiosity, do you have stats from a neutral, credible sources that provide different numbers than that?

Quote:The Centres of Disease Control and Prevention study published in the journal Pediatrics examined trends is national US Government data from 2002 to 2014 and found on average 5,790 children were treated for gunshot wounds each year between 2012 and 2014.

From the link. That's *your* country that the study was done in. Unless the only people qualified to read studies are NRA members? You want to see the "raw data"? Laugh out load You're a master statistician now?

I mean, shit dude. There's bias and then there's total inability to comprehend facts...
