By nearly a factor of four, more people in America die from the flu and pneumonia than by homicide (all homicides, including non-gun homicides).
From the Washington Examiner
What else is more deadly than firearms? (Share your statistics!)
Auto accidents, medical malpractice, poisoning, kids on bicycles …
Gravity…11.2 falls, vs. 4.5 homicides via firearms per CDC…(per 100,000)
According to the FBI, fists, feet, and other weapons of opportunity.
FBI statistics show the baseball bat as the number one, non-firearm weapon I believe.
Medical malpractice. John’s Hopkins University says 250,xxx annual deaths from malpractice.
Poisoning is mentioned first post but I’d like to be more specific than just general ‘poisons.’

be’cause when you told your parents that you wanted that Roy Rogers bb gun, everybody told Them that You’d shoot your eye out… Now’days everybody thinks they are your parents.
