you might want to check your figures...the ones that you made up, I mean.
As of 2009 there are estimated to be 310 million firearms in America owned legally by citizens. In 2009 there were estimated to be 10,301 homicides committed with firearms.
That works out to about .00332% of legally purchased guns being used to commit homicides...a number which completely ignores
the fact that the vast majority of firearms homicides (anywhere between 75% and 90%) are committed by criminals who are already prohibited from owning firearms and are, by definition, using an illegal firearm.
So really, worst case scenario (meaning using the 75% number)...you're looking at about .000831% of legally purchased firearms are being used to commit homicides
On the other hand, it's also estimated that firearms are used or displayed successfully for self-defense somewhere between 1.5 million and 2.5 million times each year
. Compare that to the 310 million legally owned firearms in the U.S. and that works out to somewhere between .484% and .806% of legally owned firearms are used to save lives. *Meaning legally owned firearms save lives somewhere between 582 and 970 times more often than legally owned firearms are used to commit homicides.*
But you go ahead and keep using that 100% number, if that makes you feel better. Don't let the facts get in your way or anything...better to just pick random numbers pulled out of yo...uh...the air.
