More than 2,100 children and teens are killed by guns every year.  

  "The average gun-owning household has more than seven guns. It's kind of crazy that we own more guns than the population in this country." Ted Miller, health economist at the Pacific Research and Evaluation Institute Said in an interview with US media.
