“Over the past 30 years, firearm suicides have exceeded homicides even when homicide rates were at their highest in the late 1980s and early 1990s. But, since 2006, the gap between the two has been widening, with firearm homicides decreasing and suicides increasing.”
In 2012, the latest year for which data is available, 64 percent of deaths from gun violence were suicides, compared with 57 percent in 2006. This increase can be largely attributed to white males, whose suicide rate far surpasses black and Hispanic males of every age.
"Among white men ages 35 to 64, the death rate by firearm increased over 29 percent since 1990 (after being corrected for population growth), and a staggering 89.2 percent of those deaths were self-inflicted."

This gets to the point that "guns are far more dangerous to their owners than anybody who might threaten those owners." Harvard researchers have "found that guns in the home are used more often to frighten intimates than to thwart crime; other weapons are far more commonly used against intruders than are guns."
The National Institutes of Health has reported (here) that "guns kept in homes are more likely to be involved in a fatal or nonfatal accidental shooting, criminal assault, or suicide attempt than to be used to injure or kill in self-defense.
These Rambos who keep arsenals in their basements and loaded Glocks under their pillows. on the back of the commode, beside the TV remote and in the kitchen are far more likely to do something stupid, reckless or threatening to a family member than to ward off some kind of dangerous or semi-dangerous intruder. But you'll never convince them of that with numbers or even eye-witness testimony.
