To understand gun violence, examine gun-injury rates

Gun violence in PG-13 movies has substantially increased in the past 30 years. The rise in gun use in movies is especially strong since 2000, and this parallels a rise in gun injuries seen in emergency departments in the United States. There has also been a rise in mass shootings over the past 10 years.
