- More children and teens die from guns every three days than have died in the Newtown massacre.
- 9,595 people were killed in gun violence in 2010. That’s a combined loss of 400,000 years of life to gun violence.
- The number of children killed by guns in 2010 was more than the number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty that same year.
- Between 1979 and 2010, 119,079 children and teens died from guns. That’s more than all of the U.S. soldiers killed in action in the Vietnam, Korean, Afghanistan and Iraq wars combined.
Faith’s Lodge will open its doors April 18-21, 2013 to eight qualifying families in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin who are grieving the death of a child lost to violence. Weekend programming for Campaign L2V will include:
