FiveThirtyEight has released a comprehensive breakdown of gun deaths in America using data from the CDC’s Multiple Cause of Death database. More than 33,000 people are fatally shot in the U.S. each year. While the majority of media coverage focuses on terrorism, mass shootings, police officers killed, and police shootings, they make up a fraction of the total. Nearly two-thirds of gun deaths are suicides with more than 45% of the victims men age 45 or older.
