In the United States…
There are at least 37 million homes with guns.
1.7 million children and teens live in a home with a loaded, unlocked gun.
Every day 41 children and teens are shot and survive. 31 are shot in an assault, 1 survives a suicide attempt and 8 are shot unintentionally.
75% of children killed with guns in 2015 were under the age of 12.
In 2015, on average, a toddler in America shoots someone about once a week.
