Guns are killing more U.S. children. Shooting survivors can face lifelong challenges

National Public Radio – April 18

Gun injuries and mortality among young people are increasing in the U.S. Firearms are now the leading cause of death for children and teenagers, whether that's from gun-related assault, suicide, or "unintentional" deaths (accidents). Research also indicates that nonfatal firearm injuries among minors are increasing as well. As devastating as the deaths are, it's estimated that 2-4 times as many U.S. children survive a gunshot injury. But they can face life-long challenges such as disability, pain, mental trauma and financial burdens.
