@jessicawapner

GUN VIOLENCE is gutting the United States, and the wound is increasingly visible. More than 11,000 Americans are killed in assaults involving guns annually, with at least 50,000 more injured. Among people between the ages of 15 and 24, nine of every 100,000 lives end due to a gun homicide. About 65 of every 100,000 people in this age group are injured by gun assaults every year.
