gang violence has very little, extremely little to nothing to do with child mortality. It does not even register as a statistic.
injury deaths account for over 12,000 annually. The leading cause for ages
under one is suffocation. 1-4 it is drowning. 5 - 19 age group the leading cause of injury is motor vehicle incident.
Literally most of the dead children die from accidents with little to do with access to firearms or medical care. Maybe self driving cars will reduce
that over the next twenty years, but I won't be holding my breath.
Also I was playing with numbers, and did you know our overall death rate between Australia and USA in relation to population is not far apart.
24 million Australians and 158,000 died in 2016
for an approximate death rate of 0.65%
annually. USA with 323,000,000 people and 2.6 million deaths in 2014
was 0.82% that year. Our
rate difference in mortality from total population is only apart by 0.017%
The UK is right under USA. Total population of 65.6 Million and total deaths of
525,000 in 2016
Rounds out to about 0.8% annual death
Europeans and Australia should get your guns back, the government lied to you!!!
