According to gunpolicy.org, there are approximately 270 million firearms in America. In 2014, there were more than 15,800 gun-related homicides. Recent reports also indicate more than 84,000 non-fatal gun injuries. Clearly, these statistics are alarming, but many would argue that firearms are safe when used with care and provide a number of benefits for owners and their loved-ones. As Americangunfacts.com reports, each year guns are used 80 times more often to protect a life than to take one. No matter what your personal views are on gun ownership or gun control, the reality is that they are prevalent in America.
While the likelihood of getting shot by a firearm is much less than being involved in an automobile accident (the National Safety Council estimates that 38,300 people were killed and 4.4 million were injured on U.S. roads in 2015), no one wants to become a statistic.
