29. Also, there are over 7 thousand deaths from drowning in the US each year.
Drowning is the second highest cause of death for kids in the US.

We should ban pools...but many of these deaths of kids from 1 to 4 are from immersion in bath tubs and even buckets.

You antis are always THRILLED when someone dies from a gun, aren't you?
It's another statistic to support your "cause" are all fucking sickening.
