Gun deaths in US

The US gun death rate last year hit its highest mark in nearly 30 years and the rate among women has been growing faster than that of men, according to a new study.

The increase among women – most dramatically, in Black women – is playing a tragic and under-recognized role in a tally that skews overwhelmingly male, researchers said.

“Women can get lost in the discussion because so many of the fatalities are men,” said one the authors, Dr Eric Fleegler of Harvard Medical School.

Among Black women, the rate of firearm-related homicides more than tripled since 2010 and the rate of gun-related suicides more than doubled since 2015, Fleegler and his co-authors wrote in the paper published by JAMA Network Open.
