This graphic is not dated but shows clear statistical trends — firearm deaths are last! (Source: JPFO.org)
This is an incredibly misleading and inaccurate chart. The categories are conflated at best and misnamed at worst. For example, “Non-firearm homicides” should actually be named “All homicides”, thus including firearm. Thus, the actual number for “non-firearm homicides” is closer to 5k. Similarly, “unintentional injuries” includes many of the other categories that are also listed separately (e.g. vehicle and poisoning deaths).
But… why let the facts get in the way of a good chart…
Even with a couple of errors, overall it does make a point……….
How do you maintain that “not-firearm homicides” should include the category of “firearm homicides”? Isn’t that why they separated them?
Thats what I was wondering Buck!
says who? you maybe correct, but where is your data?
a great list, shows the real killers.
No reason to dispute the chart. What is the real killer in this country? Wake up people and get clean.
