In 2009, guns took the lives of 31,347 Americans in homicides, suicides and unintentional shootings. This is the equivalent of more than 85 deaths each day and more than three deaths each hour. Every day gun violence affects another family, another community, another town; it’s not an urban issues or an rural issue; it is an issue that touches every corner of our country. Join ICHV in our fight to end gun violence!
