Some more facts:


Over 400,000 life-threatening crimes are prevented every year by firearms.
90% of all violent crimes in the U.S are committed without the use of any firearms.
Fewer than 1% of all firearms owned in America are ever used in a crime.
92% of gang murders are committed with guns.
2/3rds of those killed with firearms were involved in some type of crime at the time.

You can look these facts up in places like,

Bureau of Alcohol and Firearms
FBI Uniform Crime Statistics
Bureau of Justice Statistics.
