US Children are 12 times more likely to die by gunfire than children in 25 other industrialized countries combined. That’s an outrageous amount and Guns4Cameras.org is taking action to help save the lives of these children. Their unique tactic is to go around the country and educate kids that are affected by gun-violence. They give them the knowledge and gift of having an option to shoot a video camera to “Aim to Live,” rather than a gun that kills.
