    Death of children by firearms

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
    ― Samuel Adams

    This is great news, but it is tragic that any child dies.

    Very interesting pie chart. I for one am going to keep my kids at home with the loaded guns and not let them ride in a car or go swimming. Of course they will have to sleep on a bare mattress in the middle of the floor because I can't risk giving them a pillow or blanket. Might get cold because I don't want to risk a fire hazard from the space heater.

    Yeah, run the numbers though. The numbers don't add up. If you add all the percentages they come out to 100%, But if you calculate the percentage from the numbers given, It's actually LESS Than one percent. It's just barely over 1/2 of a percent (0.64 percent).

    We can do more. Mandatory firearms education in all government schools.

    Sounds like more pillow education is needed too! Remember... if pillows are outlawed, only outlaws will be well-rested.

    I hope the pediatricians will become more concerned with pillows in the home and less concerned with firearms.
