Gun Deaths

Courtesy of Daily Kos, here's an interesting chart:

As you can see, gun deaths in the United States are inching up to the point when they may exceed motor vehicle deaths in the fairly near future.  Apparently, they already do in 14 States.

The article points out that government regulation has massively reduced motor vehicle deaths.  Of course, we are not allowed to have that sort of thing for guns, because FREEDOM!!!

That's an interesting chart, but it looks like most of the reduction in car accident deaths occurred over a two to three year period between 2006 and 2009. I wonder what was unique about that time period.
