There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms and this number is not disputed. The US population is 324,059,091 as of Wednesday, June 22, 2016, do the math that is 0.000000925% of the population die from gun related accidents each year. statistically speaking this is insignificant. what is never told however the breakout of those 30,000 deaths to put them in to perspective as compared to other causes of death.
65% of those debts are by suicide which would never be prevented by gun laws
15% of my law enforcement in the line of duty and are justified
17% or through criminal activity gang and drug related or mentally or persons
3% or accidental discharge death
so gun violence is not 30,000 annually but 5100. still too many!
lets see how these deaths span across our nation
480 homicides 9.4% were in Chicago
344 homicide 6.7% were in Baltimore
333 homicides 6.5% were in Detroit
119 homicides 2.3% were in Washington DC
so basically 25% of all gun crime happens and just for cities all four of those cities have strict gun laws so it is not the lack of laws that is the root cause!
that basically leaves 3825 for the entire rest of the nation or about 75 deaths per state that is an average because some states have much higher rates than others for example California had 1169 in Alabama had 1 now who has the strictest gun laws by far California! of course but understand it’s not the guns causing this it’s a criminal. It must be something other than the tool causing a gun deaths.
