Sunday Child Shooting Review

Here is just some of the gun violence involving children (16 and under) from only the past week (3/0--3/17) that you should be aware of, and which will hopefully motivate you to join the American Academy of Pediatrics and others who are advocating for ways to keep our kids safe.

Also, please visit the new Gun Control Reform Activism Group for more information about how DUers are working to stop gun violence.



A 4 year-old boy was shot through a garage wall.


An 11 year-old girl was shot in front of a clothing store.

7. Just out of curiousity...

If your concern is related to child mortality, just curious why you choose to only focus on children that are killed due to guns?

No tragedy or outrage when parents bear a child to death for failing to read the bible......?

Or does that not fit an agenda?
