Healthline: Daniel Flannery, director of the Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education, discussed the 30% increase in unintentional fatal shootings by children compared to 2019. “More young people are carrying guns, guns are more easily accessible to young people, and they are using them more frequently to settle disputes,” he said.
