  1. Collateral damage says:

    In 2021 there were at least 144 incidents of gunfire on school grounds in the U.S., resulting in 28 deaths and 86 injuries nationally. https://everytownresearch.org/maps/gunfire-on-school-grounds/
    When it comes to how American children are exposed to gun violence, gunfire at schools is just the tip of the iceberg – every year, more than 3,000 children and teens are shot and killed and 15,000 more are shot and injured. An estimated 3 million children in the US are exposed to shootings per year.

    “The use of ghost guns — self-assembled firearms that are often made with parts sold online and do not have serial numbers — has been on the rise in some major cities.
    According to a Justice Department news release in May, between 2016 and 2020, more than 23,000 un-serialized firearms were reported to have been recovered by law enforcement from potential crime scenes.”
