The age-adjusted rate of firearm deaths per 100,000 people rose from 10.3 per 100,000 in 1999 to 12 per 100,000 in 2017.



An increase of less than 2 people per 100,000 in 18 years!

IOW, a rounding error not even worthy of reporting.

Why on earth the CDC even tracks gun deaths is a mystery as guns <> "disease."

Such nonsense.

Considering you can take out half that number due to suicides, we are at 5 per 100,000.

Not a big problem.

Tell your kid not to engage in gang activity, the number falls even more.

Worry about something that is an actual threat.

Does that include the 60 or so shot dead in the UK?
How about the 700 or so TOTAL murders here?
I know.... we're repressed, restricted, reigned over.

Just 2 per state. That is pretty darned low! 4 people will die in car crashes just while you watch the NFL pregame!

Maybe it was injured, not died. But we had that stat in a safety class once. Either way, 2 per state per day is a very low number not worth worth grabbing guns.
