New Children's Defense Fund Report Highlights NRA's Efforts To Hide The Truth About Guns And Block Child Gun Violence Prevention

The report calls on Congress to protect children from gun violence by supporting common sense gun safety measures this year, including universal background checks, limits on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, public funding for gun violence prevention research, consumer safety standards for all guns, and resources and authority for law enforcement agencies to properly enforce gun laws.

The report contains a state-by-state breakdown of child and teen gun deaths; analysis of the psychological and emotional trauma of gun violence on children; comparisons of U.S. gun violence rates with other high-income countries; good and bad state actions on gun violence prevention; and an economic analysis of the cost of gun violence. The report also provides actions that individuals, communities and policymakers can take now to protect children from gun violence.
