Gun violence recently surpassed car accidents as the leading cause of death for American children. The gun-death rate for children is nearly five in every 100,000. It was flat for more than a decade starting in 2000, and most years fewer than three in every 100,000 children were killed by guns. In 2014, the rate began to creep up, and by 2020 guns became the leading killer. Dr. Jason Goldstick’s work is featured prominently in this NY Times analysis of firearm-related deaths among youth.
