Glad to have learned about John Smith 223 blog. Very smart approach to “reasoning through the gun control debate.” This particular entry is typical of his posts in general.
I investigate the need for increased safety among gun owners. Earlier I posted about the dramatic decline in accidental fatalities among children under 15. Here I add the fatality rate for all ages.
This shows the dramatic decline in all firearm-related fatalities. It appears that the decline has been steeper for all ages than for children under 15. That, however, is not correct. Plotting this on a log10 scale shows that the slope for the children’s fatalities is steeper than that for all ages. That means that the rate of decline has been even faster for children.
