The U of M study and therefore also the NEJM article used age range extending to age 19. To characterize this as a “pediatric” group is terribly misleading. The stats diverge wildly as you examine a younger cohort group.
If you exclude adults from this study (as almost all states now treat 18-19 year olds as adults), you also exclude huge numbers of young adult gang members and suicides, large components of gun violence deaths.
Not very useful for Undark to repeat this nonsense.
