5. I think this is about how you frame it-
(like so much else in life). I think it's a really positive sign (purely in light of this data and the RKBA debate- of course I don't find death to usually be a positive thing) that accidental discharge is less common than 99 other ways to die.

I'm sad that there are so many accidental drownings. I'd love to see them both move way down on the list, and interestingly enough I'd bet that both could be reduced greatly by increased supervision of kids by their parents, and by increased education.

To me, it doesn't say "HOLY SHIT that's a lot of gun deaths!"

It says "Holy Shit, that's a lot of drownings."
