    will reply to myself and add some interesting statisitics.

    For the year 2010 there were on average 30 gun related homicides per day in the US and an additional  40 plus gun related suicides for a per day total over 70.

    By contrast deaths due to Medical error ( and these numbers are believed to be under reported average 684 per day.
