21. Accidents? From the same CDC report commissioned by Pres. Obama

 

“Unintentional firearm-related deaths have steadily declined during the past century. The number of unintentional deaths due to firearm-related incidents accounted for less than 1 percent of all unintentional fatalities in 2010.”

A person is literally 100 times more likely to die of accidental causes by anything that's not a gun.

Suicide? Ask Robin Williams, France, Japan or any one of the 30 other nations with both a higher suicide rate & less guns per capita about that.

I can assure you, neither guns nor life in the USA is scary.
Get out more. Educate yourself.
There's a reason that gun control has less support in areas with more guns per capita.
