  1. I hear you when you say you prefer “[your] version of reality better”, but I’m going to go ahead and post actual FBI data anyway:

    I feel better, now. Have a great day. :)

  2. I don't get your point. The numbers made be slightly off but, even using yours, you are more likely to be knifed, killed with blunt instruments (like a baseball bat) or simply beat to death that being shot.

  3. I was noticing the line in your chart: “According to the FBI, the #1 weapon used in violent crimes is a baseball bat.” 428 deaths in 2013 contributed to Blunt Objects (like baseball bats), however, are not more than 8,454 deaths due to firearms in 2013.
