DOJ Report: Youth Gun Violence Down 95% from 1994

DOJ Report: Youth Gun Violence Down 95% from 1994

A recently released Department of Justice (DOJ) study shows that youth aged 12 through 17 are six times more likely to be attacked by someone using a knife instead of gun.

The study shows a heavy drop–a full 95%–in gun-related violence toward youth from 1994 to 2010.

Moreover, the study shows that “serious crimes against youth perpetrated at schools dropped 62%” over this same period of time.

The study also showed that youth who came from a single parent home were 3.8 times more likely to be a victim of violent crime, and “homicides among American youth declined by 65 percent from 1993 to 2010.”

Nevertheless, President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) are pushing for more stringent gun control.
