    Firearms versus "Other" causes of injury

    I know that "out there" some of you have a pie-chart or graph of causes of death and/or injury in the United States.

    Would like to show some valid documentation of deaths/injurys by firearm as compared to the other causes (Automobile/cancer/train wreck/ what ever).

    Yes, I tried the internet and the search function of these hallowed pages....came up with nada!

    Thanks in advance!

    You might check the CDC website since they track all deaths and causes.

    FASTSTATS - Deaths and Mortality

    Forgot to add, it may take some searching on their site to find the exact info you're looking for.

    Thanks guys,
    Msgt/ret...that site lumps guns deaths with all other accidental deaths. The idea is to show the firearm related ones against automobile/falling/electrocution, medical mistakes, etc. against firearm caused demise.

    Tubby45...not 'zactly what I wanted, but thanks...I'll use this one too!

    I know the most common form of homicide is BFT or "Blunt Force Trauma" and the margin is not even close. If I can find the stats I will post them, but IIRC it was like 75% BFT, and only like 10% firearms.
