Emerging Threat or Problem Solved?

I found a discussion of an old Time/Life article on teaching children firearms safety.

The article specifically mentions that in 1956 there were 550 fatalities of children under 15 years of age from accidental discharges of firearms. Using that number and the CDC Wonder data, it is possible to create a time series of fatalities from 1956 up through 2010.

This shows that there has been a remarkable decline in these fatalities over the last six decades.
