A little boy. A tragic accident.
Louisiana is known for its vibrant culture and its lush greenery.
But it also suffers from one of the highest rates of gun-related deaths in America, with about 21 gun-related deaths per 100,000 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Louisiana also disproportionately records accidental gun deaths compared to most other states.
