GUN VIOLENCE

INTRO

It has been widely recognized that firearms are the main tool used to commit acts of violence and crime. Firearms are more widely used than any other weapon. While the rate varies from region to region, recent estimates suggest that approximately 41-46% of all homicides involve firearms. Worldwide, approximately 86% of homicides using firearms are deaths in non-conflict settings. These estimates do not factor in suicides committed with firearms or deaths by firearms in conflict settings.
