They are usually the same morons who think that other laws don't apply to them as well. Unfortunately, almost half of all traffic fatalities are caused by drunk drivers. It's a dangerous practice. If we could find a treatment that would stop half of all heart attacks, the medical community would definitely make sure it was standard practice.

How many hunters per year are shot or killed?

These are difficult figures to find, since the numbers are so low that the statistics tend not to receive high priority. Based on estimates by the International Hunter Education Association (IHEA), in 1995, approximately 17 million persons purchased hunting licenses in the United States (excluding Alaska). In 1995, IHEA reported 1201 hunting injuries involving firearms, including 107 (9%) fatalities. Of these injuries, 851 (71%) involved two parties, including 69 (5.8%) fatalities.That would work out in the neighborhood of 6.3 firearms fatalities for every 100,000 hunters, from all firearms causes. There is no reason to think that the statistics have changed much since. Other causes, such as heart attacks and physical accidents, are much more numerous. Of course, if you or a loved one are the victim, statistics don't matter much.
