Gun Deaths among children in the U.S. due to Availability of Arms in their Homes

I just came across this article in the New York Times today, “Children and Guns: The Hidden Toll” regarding the statistics of accidental gun deaths occurring among children under 15 years of age in the United States, which tend to be classified as homicide or suicide, when in fact they are accidents that occur because of the proximity of guns in their homes.

I’ve written blogs about the subject previously, in conjunction with some of the more atrocious incidents.
