Bang bang

About 80,000 Americans a year survive gunshot injuries. Gunshot wounds cost the US an average annual $622 million at least.

The average annual cost per admission for a firearm assault injury is $20,989, more than twice that of a typical hospital stay.

According to the Gun Violence Archive (as of the end of August) so far this year there have been 10,267 deaths from firearms in the US.
