Gun-related injuries and deaths among children are on the rise ... especially in states with a high percentage of household firearms. 

A new study tracking trends in gunshot violence found that between 1997 and 2009 ... the number of children admitted to the hospital for gun-related reasons increased by 45-percent.
there was also a 37-percent rise in the number of children who died from their injuries.

Handguns accounted for the majority of these incidents ... especially in areas where home gun ownership was more common.
