      Guns make regular appearances in the reports from child fatality review teams.

      Child Death Review, New Mexico, 2012
      Homicide       Key Findings
      1) There were 44 child homicides in 2009-2011and the majority of victims were male.
      2) Infants had a higher death rate than did older children, and American Indians had a slightly higher death rate than children of other racial/ethnic groups.
      3) A firearm was used in 36% of child homicides.
      4) The Child Abuse and Neglect Panel reviewed 24 homicides of children and found that 92% of them were committed by their primary caregiver.
      5) Twelve children whose cases were reviewed by the CAN Panel were found to have abusive head trauma that caused or contributed to the death.
