365 children die each year in the 480,000 school buses = 76 deaths per 100,000 school buses

606 people are killed each year in accidental deaths by 310 million guns = 0.20 deaths per 100,000 guns

Of those, 212 are children = 0.07 child deaths per 100,000 guns

School buses are 1,111 TIMES more dangerous than guns

Table 15

365 children die each year in the 480,000 school buses = 76 deaths per 100,000 school buses

200 children are murdered each year by 310 million guns = 0.07 children per 100,000 guns

Per unit, school buses are 1,085 TIMES more deadly to children than guns

 

 

 

School busses are 369 times more dangerous to children than guns

We need more school bus control

bulletOne million school busses in the US kill 310 children each year.
bulletConversely, the 250 million guns kill only 210 children each year.
