Nicole continues to write biased one sided covid articles!


Hmmm....number eight cause of death for children. That's not good. I wonder what the number one cause of death for children 21 and younger is???



"Firearms are the number one cause of death for children in the United States, but rank no higher than fifth in 11 other large and wealthy countries, a new analysis finds.

"Guns – including accidental deaths, suicides, and homicides – killed 4,357 children (ages 1-19 years old) in the United States in 2020, or roughly 5.6 per 100,000 children."

spicy: Nothing biased here.



Stop regurgitating propaganda.

The FBI SHRs reveal that 80% of children younger than 12 who are murdered are not killed with firearms. The vast majority of young homicide victims are beaten, bludgeoned, burned, strangled or stabbed to death. The mostly likely murderers of young children are not some scary looking psycho with an AR-15. The child killers are mothers followed by mother's boyfriends, step fathers and step siblings. For every child that is murdered, many more survive the abuse. They grow up to become angry young men who do drugs, deal drugs, join gangs and commit violent crimes. Black children are about five times as likely to be murdered by their mothers, mother's boyfriends, step fathers and step siblings than white, Hispanic, Asian and Native American children.

Maybe we should focus on protecting children from abuse rather than obsessing about guns.


The facts do not support your assertion of the number one cause of death in the US. It is firearms. Deal with it


Apples and oranges, JWC. The leading cause of death among children includes accidents and suicides, not just homicides. And it says nothing about the most common means of homicide among children, which is an entirely different issue. The fact is that firearms account for more deaths among U.S. children than any other means. Live with it.


JWC: The federal Centers for Disease Control publishes data on the leading causes of death among different demographic groups, providing the most reliable data. In 2020, the leading cause of death among children ages one through 18 involved a firearm. There were 3,219 such deaths in 2020, followed by motor vehicle traffic deaths, of which there were 2,882.

In their report about gun violence, "A Year in Review: 2020 Gun Deaths in the U.S.," researchers at the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Violence Solutions analyzed CDC data from 2020 and found that gun violence was the leading cause of death among children, teens, and young adults under age 25. Firearms were also the leading cause of death for children and teens ages 1 to 19, taking the lives of 4,357 young people, they wrote.

The report also found that gun violence claimed more lives in 2020, more than 45,000, than it had during any year on record.



… of children …


@Jean the correct answer is abortion
