A child is killed or injured by a gun every 30 minutes in America. More children die every three days in America than died in the Newtown massacre. As a nation, aren’t we better than this? Learn more about the CDF gun report, “Protect Children, Not Guns,” which documents gun violence in our nation; download our current fact sheet, “The Truth About Guns,” and find ways to make sure your voice is heard in Washington. When it comes to protecting our children from guns, we can do better.
