More than 32,000 Americans die per year due to gun violence. That's around 87 deaths a day. Also , There's anywhere between 500,000to 3 million annual cases of guns being used for self defense. This means that 16 out of 100 people are using guns for self defense opposed to violence.

handguns should be off the streets because people tend to use the for violence instead of self defense.

In 2014 A doctor used his concealed handgun to disable a homicidal gunman who had began firing in a hospital in Darby, Pennsylvania. One hospital worker was killed, but police credited the doctor with preventing a mass shooting. This is because 40% of guns are sold with no background checks.
