More than 3,000 children and teenagers are shot and killed in the U.S. annually, according to Everytown for Gun Safety, while 15,000 are shot and wounded."That's an average of 51 American young people every day," the group's website states."And the effects of gun violence extend far beyond those struck by a bullet: An estimated three million children witness a shooting each year. Gun violence shapes the lives of the children who witness it, know someone who was shot, or live in fear of the next shooting."
