According to Corey Whelan a freelance writer in New York for the Examiner, statistically, in more then one third of households containing a working firearm, far more individuals, especially children, are accidentally shot. In addition to the number of children wounded or killed by firearms, women also disproportionately find themselves at the wrong end of a gun in their own homes, with a current or former romantic partner typically pulling the trigger. According to a report filed by the Washington Sate Department of Social Health Services, a child or teen is killed once every seven and a half hours with a gun, either by accident or by suicide. In 72 percent of these cases, the firearm used was housed in the victim's own residence. Join us as we discuss this issue.
