17. All gun violence, deaths and injuries, aren't crimes.

Your original link in your OP is a CDC report. The National Academies of Sciences, “Firearms and Violence: A Critical Review (2004)” you referenced in your OP, lists the CDC as one of the Selected Sources of Firearm Data it's footnoted & referenced numerous times. The Gun Control Legislation" November 14, 2012 Congressional Research Service report you also referenced uses CDC data. You may think you didn’t need CDC but even some of the information you’ve used was provided by them.
There’s a difference here in perspective that is worth mentioning. Data on crime which is what the FBI’s Uniform CRIME Report is, is not the only concern when the discussion is about gun violence. All gun violence, the deaths and injuries aren’t crimes. CDC’s WISQARS shows that there were 15,281 people shot “unintentionally” in 2010, few if any are charged or convicted of crimes that make the UCR.
