Why should you join the Coalition?

  • Because the rate of firearm deaths among children 0-14 years old is nearly TWELVE times higher in the United States than in 25 other industrialized countries combined.[1]
  • Because the suicide rate for children 0-14 years old is TWICE as high in the U.S. than in 25 other industrialized countries combined. There is no difference in the non-firearm suicide rate between the U.S. and the 25 other countries. Virtually all the difference is attributable to suicides being committed with guns in the U.S.[2]
  • BECAUSE we are loosing eight children a day to gun related deaths!
