On average, roughly 1,200 people are victims of fatal firearm accidents annually. Additionally, nearly 36,000 people suffer from unintentional nonfatal injuries due to an accidental discharge of a firearm. Many of these accidents are due to the inexperience or carelessness of the gun handler and can be avoidable. Whether a firearm accident results in death or severe injury, it can be extremely traumatic and create life-changing conditions for those involved. Some of the injuries resulting from firearm negligence can be caused by (but are not limited to):
- Inexperienced handling of a gun
- Hunting accidents
- Unsupervised children with guns
- Impaired gun handling
- Unsecured guns
- Improperly maintained guns
