Sunday Shooting Review [View all]

Here is just some of the gun violence against children from the past week (1/28-2/3) that you should be aware of and which will hopefully motivate you to join the American Academy of Pediatrics and others who are advocating for ways to keep our kids safe:


• A 3 year-old boy was accidentally shot in his apartment; it's still unclear whether he shot himself.


• A 5 year-old girl was accidentally shot while in her home; it's still unclear whether she shot herself.


• A 3 year-old boy shot himself with his father's unattended pistol.


• A 14 year-old boy was shot at school.


• A 2 year-old boy was shot while sitting the back seat of a car.


• A 15 year-old girl and 16 year-old boy were shot while taking cover from a rainstorm.


• A toddler of unspecified age shot himself with an unattended handgun.


• A 16 year-old boy was shot, along with a 22 year-old man, near a park.


• A 1 year-old boy and his mother were shot, along with a 17 year-old, on the sidewalk.


• An 11 year-old boy was shot while in his backyard.


• An 8 year-old girl was shot while standing in front of her home.


• A 2 year-old girl and her father were shot by the child's mother in a domestic dispute.


• A 16 year-old boy was shot in a parking lot.


• A 10 year-old boy was shot by an errant hunter's bullet while sitting in a school bus.


• A 2 year-old boy and his mother were shot in their car.



In the interest of time, I've stopped collecting stories of victims over the age of 16; the list would be a little over twice as long if we went to 18.

Here's to a better week.
