Baloney. Anytime I see large blocks of age groups, which have no data, means to me that those statistics have been rolled into another category.
There's no "unintentional deaths" by guns, below the age of 5, and above the age of 14. An anomoly? Very unlikely. It's pretty clear they simply classified all those as suicides.
From another source, in 2008: Children between the ages of 1-18
162 accidental or undetermined
138 accidental or undetermined
Google any of these to check for yourself, that accidental deaths, by guns, of very young children is more common than you might think.
