Gun ownership more than doubles in US

ARMED WITH STATS
From a recent US Department of Justice report:
There were 11,101 firearm homicides in 2011, down by 39% from a high of 18,253 in 1993.
Nonfatal firearm-related violent victimizations against persons age 12 or older declined 70%, from 1.5 million in 1993 to 600,000 through 2011.
While the number of firearm crimes declined over time, the percentage of all violence that involved a firearm only showed a small reduction. In 1993, 9% of all violence was committed with a firearm, compared to 8% in 2011.
