How many times do anti-gunners cite "gun death" statistics to try to make a point?

Yeah, Hitler died a "gun death." Let's all cry over that.

Of themselves, gun death statistics are meaningless.

1. They do not distinguish between wrongful gun deaths and good gun deaths. In my view of things, if the gun death is of a criminal or thug in the act of their felony or violence, I'm glad for the gun death as the world is a better place without them.

2. Gun death stats do not account for deaths that would have happened anyway - such as a suicide. If a person wants to blow out his/her brains with a gun, go for it.

3. Gun death statistics don't include all the deaths that did NOT occur because of guns. Numerous times I've cited the stat by the DOJ that guns prevent 1 million non-drug felonies and 500,000 home invasions per year.

They also don't care to include Democide
20th Century Democide

263,000,000 people dead in a 113 years at the hands of government - the same government most of the anti gunners promote with glee.

From my understanding access to firearms actually influences both the number of suicides and their success rate. This is because guns allow easy access to a means to commit the act and ensure a high rate of success.
