So, here’s what I came up with. Please feel free to comment and or provide more accurate information.
In 2017 there were a total of 37,133 deaths in auto crashes according to Madd.org. 10,874 of which were caused by drunk driving. The CDC’s numbers are actually higher FYI.
Now lets see the murders in 2017.
In 2017 there were 15,129 total murder (doesn’t include suicide) victims. Of that 10,982 were from all firearm categories, and to dig deeper, 403 from rifles (which doesn’t even break it down by TYPE of rifle). So count on that being less for AR-15 specific incidents. And this data includes the Vegas incident.
Of the 2,813,503 total deaths in the US in the 2017 calendar year 47,173 of those were suicides and of those 23,854 were with a firearm. So suicides by firearm more than double that of ALL MURDERS by firearm. And absolutely tower over the amount of murders by rifle, it isn’t even close.
So you see with leftist anti-2A idiots the facts don’t support their “gun violence” arguments. When we get down to it we should be focusing on helping the mentally unstable/mentally ill with the help they need (their firearms/property stays with the family), get tougher on preventing alcohol / intoxication related deaths and absolutely pay close attention to those who may be a potential suicide victim. Gun control should be the last damn thing to worry about right now, we have too many other categories of death to try and resolve first. And I didn’t even get in to some of the other causes of death that absolutely dwarf death by firearm.
