    CDC, FBI: Bicycle and Falling Deaths Far Exceed Deaths from 'Mass Shootings'.

    Death statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) coupled with crime statistics from the FBI show that bicycle and falling deaths far exceed deaths from "mass shootings."
    [ ... ]
    For example, the CDC bicycle-related injury report for 2010 shows that almost twice as many people died on bicycles in that one year than were killed in "mass shootings" during the 14 years studied by the FBI. Thus, while there were 418 deaths in "mass shootings" from 2000 to 2013, there were 800 deaths by bicycle in 2010 alone. Moreover, there "were an estimated 515,000 emergency department visits" due to bicycle accidents.

    And CDC death statistics for 2010 show there were 26,009 deaths from "falling" for that year alone. That's right--26,009 deaths in one year from falls from ladders, counters, roofs, mountains, etc.

    There were an average of 29.8 deaths a year for 14 years from "mass shootings.

    That's all fine and good (also accurate and pretty well known to informed 2A supporters) but 99% of anti-gun sentiment is emotional rather than factual so a fist full of facts is of only limited value.
