Gun laws are vital

More gun control laws would reduce gun deaths.

American children under age 15 were nine times more likely to die of a gun accident. (American Journal of Public Health).

Legally owned guns are frequently stolen and used by criminals.

Almost all guns used in criminal acts enter circulation via initial legal transaction. (Institute of Medicine.)

More gun control leads to fewer suicides.

Firearms related suicides accounted for 61% of the gun deaths in the United States between 2000 and 2010. (Health Policy.)
