on .

More young Americans are likely to be killed by guns than car crashes this year for the first time in decades, according to a new report published by a DC-based research group.

Researchers at the Center for American Progress (CAP), a DC-based progressive public policy research and advocacy organization, have published an analysis in which they predict that shooting deaths will claim more lives in 2015 than automobiles – at least among America’s youth.

Do Guns Protect Us? Violence Policy Center Says No

The gun lobby was understandably quiet after the tragic shooting of Veronica Rutledge by her 2-year-old son in the Hayden, Idaho, Walmart. After all, it's pretty tough to reconcile the human cost of such carelessness with the notion that people walking around with guns make themselves and others more safe. But sooner or later you can always count on John Lott, the author of More Guns, Less Crime, to stomp into territory where others fear to tread, and he's done it in this case with a Fox News blog in which he accuses the media of playing up the few instances of accidental shootings involving folks who legally carry guns, while ignoring or downplaying the many instances in which gun-carrying citizens protected themselves and others from crime.
