Resolution to Action -- Spring 2014

Jodi Sandoval’s 14-year-old son, Noah McGuire, was accidentally killed last year by a friend who thought the gun was unloaded. The gun belonged to the shooter’s grand-father.

Matthew Dwyer, 5, was shot by his brother with a pistol his mother had left out.

Cassie Culpepper, 11, was riding in the back of a pickup with her 12-year-old brother. He started playing with a pistol his father had lent him to scare coyotes. It fired, and blood poured from Cassie’s mouth. 

A child or teen dies or is injured from guns every 30 minutes in the United States.
