Infographic: U.S. Gun Usage and Death Statistics

 GunFactsInfographicTop

Don’t you hate it when someone pulls a statistic out of their rear end and doesn’t give it any context whatsoever? Me too. Context is what it’s all about. Without context, any figure could be bent to serve any purpose. Which is why this infographic (full version after the jump) is such a powerful tool. It puts numbers in perspective and allows you to see more of the picture than the raw statistics could convey. This one is particularly well put together. Enjoy!
