How the U.S. Compares in Rate of Gun Violence Deaths

A recent political cartoon by Mike Lukovich had a caption/commentary on U.S. troops leaving Afghanistan: “Our times up here. We are being redeployed to a war zone.”

As it turns out, gun violence deaths are higher in the U.S. than in Afghanistan, according to a recent NPR article: Gun Violence Deaths: How The U.S. Compares With The Rest Of The World. In addition, there are more gun deaths in children 4 and younger than police (NY Times: How Do We Stop the Parade of Gun Deaths? April 3, 2021).
