Washington-Sana

An American website revealed the escalation of armed violence against children and adolescents in the United States in recent years, especially this year.

The Associated Press quoted the "Archives of Armed Violence" website, which monitors and tracks shootings from more than 7,500 law enforcement sources, media, government and commercial sources, that the number of shootings rose to 1,375 in 2020, but this year is on its way to get worse.

To date, shootings have claimed the lives of 1,179 young people and injured 3,292 others and the United States saw 991 deaths in gun violence among people 17 years of age or younger in 2019.

And the FBI released a report on September 28 showing that murders in the United States increased by nearly 30 percent in 2020, and among people aged 19 or younger by more than 21 percent. The victims are teenagers.

A report issued by the Children's Defense Committee last March also revealed that shooting deaths among children and adolescents reached their highest level in 19 years in 2017, and that they continued to rise, with black children and adolescents four times more likely than whites to be shot. .

Shooting incidents are common in the United States with the spread of a culture of violence in American society and the right to own a single gun.
