And again, by "few", you mean thousands each year. Right?
Its actually 0.0010054817949593988% of the total estimated population of the United States. So, By comparison it is a tiny tiny number... even if you only consider it as a percentage of estimated firearm owners in the US it still comes to less than 1% somewhere around .015% depending on what figure you use to do the calculation. While I don't mean to trivialize any deaths or injuries caused accidentally by the firearms, it is still a statistically insignificant number... certainly not high enough to justify punishing the other 99.85% of law-abiding/responsible gun owners.
