Bad statistical math. You need to use gunowners as the population since this applies to gunowners only. The sad fact is though that gunowners come from all parts of the 300 million of us and that I am losing faith in the intelligence of this country specifically and the human race in general. What is so hard about following the simple rules of firearm safety?

Instead of a background check there should be a 'stupid check'.
This is exactly why I'm now uncomfortable going to my local range. SO many people with poor gun handling I'm surprised there aren't more examples of accidental shootings.

Gravel pit shooters. That is what I call them. People that taught themselves how to "shoot off a gun" or had one other person as aware as them there "teaching" them. No need to develop good muzzle awareness, no range master or guy next to them to threaten to beat them to death with it if they didn't keep it down range or treat it with the same respect you would if it was loaded. Same folks drag their firearms to gun shows. Or it was someone on the other end of the scale-so much time around the gun that they rely on habit rather than conscious effort ("Heck no, I ALWAYS unload it before I put it away....how did that round get in there?") and the result is that those of us in the middle get made to look like morons. Or get shot standing in line at the gun show.
