Is this not an oscillating redundancy? Far more people die in the US due to doctor/hospital mistakes, than those who die from gun injuries. :)

Yes, survivability is surely a big factor, yet it doesn’t seem to explain it all. We have put a tremendous number of scum in prison, that has to help. We have also been selling firearms to honest people at rates unheard of since the founding of the nation.
