For the appx. 1100 firearm deaths that occurred among ages 0-5 between 2010 - 2020:

"Non-Hispanic Blacks comprised 56.4% of all deaths in 2020, a 172% increase from 2010 and the rate for non-Hispanic Whites increased by 15.4% from 2010 to 2020. The majority of the deaths occurred in the South. Almost two-thirds (65.9%) of all firearm deaths were homicides, 30% were unintentional, and 4.1% were undetermined."

This is a very focused, political problem that primarily affects the people the government cares about the least, almost exclusively in places the government will not lift a finger to help. Not much can be done by people not in those locations except point out the problem.

Or the people take personal responsibility?

Too many people looking to pass the blame and not actually look in the mirror.

The homicide rate... is this split into justified homicide vs criminal homicide? Or is this just a stat for the children homicide rate?


Tahh t1_je80x3h wrote

I'm a little confused at what you are asking. As I wrote, the data is exclusively for victims ages 0 - 5. Knowing that, what do you mean by justified homicide? I honestly don't really know what a justified homicide is for any age group and I don't think they really distinguish that from other homicides in the stats, but for the topic at hand let's focus only on 0-5.

You realize we're discussing statistics of children age 0-5? What is a 'justified homicide' for that age group in your mind?

My last comment was asking.... read it again...

Maybe you should read it again.

As the commenter prefaced and the study above states, those and all other statistics presented were for children ages 0-5.


Top_Of_Gov_Watchlist t1_je7qq0y wrote

And that's what I was attempting to clarify from the person who I was directing the comment towards which wasn't the OP.... it wasn't clear what the stats they randomly posted were.

Now feel free to stop commenting to me. You have been rude for no reason.

There's no such thing as justified homicide. Self-defense would not be considered homicide.

Homicide means killing someone for any reason, including self defense. Hence the FBI publishes stats on justifiable homicides.

In this study it specifically refers to children under the age of 5, but stats for overall homicide rates are very similar.

Justifiable homicide is relatively rare, but likely has the same pattern.
