6. There were around 31,000 or so firearms deaths in the US in 2011.

That's from all causes: murder, suicide, and accidents. That represents one ten-thousandth of the entire US population of about 311 million. To put that into some perspective: it's the equivalent of four hundred firearms deaths in the United States of 1790 (four firearms deaths per 100K population, which is a little lower, probably, than the actual overall homicide rate at the time).
