A grim reminder that children are often disproportionately the victims of gun violence: From 2008 to 2009, the number of preschool-aged children killed by guns was nearly double the number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, according to a report by the Children’s Defense Fund this year.

It’s worth noting that the US has fewer than one million police officers, and something like nine million kindergarten and preschool students, so statistically this is an apples to oranges, but still plenty freaky.
