“Women in the US are 25 times more likely to be killed by guns than women in other high-income countries. Put another way, 92 percent of all women killed with guns in high-income countries in 2015 were from the US. And an astonishing share of this gun violence in America is driven by domestic violence. In an average month, at least 52 American women are shot and killed by an intimate partner, and many more are injured. Nearly 1 million women in the US alive today have been shot, or shot at, by an intimate partner” – Everytown Research on Domestic Violence
