Every year just over 30,000 people die in the US from gunshot wounds. Every two years more US citizens are killed by gunshot wounds than were lost in the entire Vietnam War.
Lets look at this another way. With a population of 310 million and an annual Death Rate of 8.3/1000 , we can calculate that 2,573,000 people die in the US each year.
Of which 30,000 die of Gun Shot - so if you live in the US you have a 1.166% chance that you will die of Gun Shot wound. The rate of gunshot deaths is about 8 times that of economically comparable nations.
Approximately 8,000 homicides annually occur with gunshot wounds. About 16,000 commit suicide with handguns. Nearly 1,000 die in gun related accidents each year. The number of persons shot by police is slightly elusive.
amazingly unintentional deaths due to firearms in the U.S. ranges anywhere from 500-1000 per year. considering there are 93 guns for every 100 people in the U.S. (not including the military and law enforcement - which would essentially make the ratio 1/1), this is AMAZING. think about that for a moment...350,000,000 guns, and less than 1000 accidental deaths...simply incredible.
FYI - intentional killings with firearms is somewhere between 30-40 thousand per year
Poster above does not give any source for his data.
According to Center for Disease Control (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr61/nvsr61_06.pdf) in 2011, there were:
- 851 deaths due to accidental discharge of firearms
- 38,285 deaths by suicide, 19,766 (51%) of which were by discharge of firearms
- 15,953 homicides, 11,101 (69%) of which were committed by discharge of firearms
However, this does not tell the entire story. The vast majority of homicides are career criminals killing other career criminals. Baltimore PD reported in 2007 that 93% of murder suspects, and 91% of murder VICTIMS had felony records. Victims averaged over 13 convictions each.
Impossible to say for across the world. Not all such deaths are reported.
At least 31940 people died from gun injuries in 2011 in the United States.
This number is slowly increasing year to year. Approximately 1.3 - 1.8% of these deaths are children.
Try the FBI Uniform Crime Report for criminal activity and the CDC for the rest.
Check out the FBI website and look at the Uniform Crime Report.
There are thousands of deaths each year in America sue to a gun related incident. An estimated number of 20 percent of deaths are related to guns.
Yes there are
The FBI reports that for 2008, the most recent year for completed statistics, the total was 14,180 homicides in the US.
The statistical information does not designate the zone as a part of the data set. The deaths are counted as a total number. Over 11,000 deaths happen with another 400,000 in gang deaths.
31,224 people according to TIME Magazine
