“All it takes is one good guy with a gun…….” – ‘At least 100 children killed by unintentional shootings since Newtown, study finds’

See…..more guns make us safer…….so we can protect our homes……or children…..well not the children.

Of course when a child is shot and killed, it’s just an ‘accident’ because we have to protect our ‘right’ to have a gun laying around the house.

‘According to a study conducted by the gun control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety, unintentional shootings have been responsible for about two child deaths every week since the December 2012 tragedy’.

‘Over the course of 52 weeks, that tally results in a total number of deaths that’s significantly higher than the yearly average (62 deaths) logged in federal records by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’.

‘The accidents occurred in 35 states, primarily in rural areas’.

‘What’s more, the report found 73 percent of the deaths were at the hands of a minor, defined as someone 14 years or younger, who in many cases was playing with a firearm’.

‘Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America ‘ :

“There are not enough laws to ensure that with rights come responsibilities,” she said. “These are preventable deaths – 70 percent of them could have been avoided if gun owners had just stored their guns responsibly.”

“We study everything in this country — even pool safety. There are even laws about how to prevent a child from being stuck inside of a refrigerator. But the gun lobby has been very effective in stopping any kind of research on this.”

‘The study noted that about 65 percent of the recorded deaths occurred in homes or vehicles owned by the victim’s family and generally involved firearms that were owned legally but not properly stored’.

‘Thirty-five percent of the cases involved a child shooting themselves accidentally, and more than 65 percent could have been avoided if owners restricted child access to the firearm’.
