Well according to the CDC, cars,poisonings, and even swimming account for annual deaths of those deaths by firearms, in particular when it applies to children. In fact, less than 70 deaths for kids under the age of 15 were due to accidental firearm use and when will look at all firearm deaths for children, the data proves more die from accidental drowning than being killed by a firearm. Now I know the focus is on assault rifles, but this truth is feculent.
What is confusing is that more than 66% of all gun deaths in the US are suicides – according to the UN, CDC, and FBI. Secondly, although there are more than 200 million rifles and shotguns owned by American citizens, 75 percent of the murders in the Americas (suicides not included) are committed with handguns with 4 percent and 5 percent being committed with rifles and shotguns respectively. These are FBI and Justice Department figures aggregated from state and local police affiliates. And I won’t say that the FBI also notes that more people are killed by bats and rifles combined.
