33,636 Gun Deaths Visualized

Marek, the automobile industry fought safety regulation tooth and nail, but traffic deaths have been declining even though the number of miles driven has been increasing (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transportation_safety_in_the_United_States). Meanwhile, an increase in numbers of guns clearly leads to increasing numbers of gun deaths. This is true internationally and on a state-by-state basis. Plenty as been and is being to reduce traffic deaths; virtually nothing is being done to reduce gun deaths. Why not try?
