More people die by gun in Michigan than in traffic accidents, based on state statistics.
Michigan averaged 927 traffic fatalities a year between 2008 and 2013, a period when an average of 1,121 people died annually from gun injuries.
Driving the gun-death numbers: Suicides.
Regardless of whether it is the act of a disgruntled ex-employee or a schizophrenic, a wanton act of murder or just some idiot playing with his gun, the facts are undeniably clear; guns kill people. Usually the wrong people. They offer little in the form of self-defense, and are more harmful to your loved ones than criminals.
