So says this NRA blog, which also notes that with the number of privately owned guns in the U.S. at an all-time high of more than 300 million, the rate of accidental deaths from firearms has fallen to an all-time low, 0.2 per 100,000 of the population. That's down 94 percent since the all-time high in 1904. Since 1930, the annual number of accidental firearm deaths has decreased 81 percent, while the U.S. population has more than doubled and the number of firearms quintupled, the blog says. Among children, accidental deaths have decreased 89 percent since 1975. The blog says that today, the odds are more than a million to one against a child dying in a firearm accident.
