There are 30,000 fatal shootings in the United States every year.

Only 260 were deemed as "justifiable homicides" in 2011.

What % value of 30,000 is 260?

No guessing please.

Well first deduct 19,392 suicides
Then deduct an estimated 71% that is gang related
Which gives you about 3,076 murders
So justifiable homicides is about 8.5%

Cool -

So, less than 1% of all gun deaths are justifiable in the eyes of the law.

Fascinating.

according to the following we also need to ban all cutting instruments and hands/feet. if you ban one, you need to ban all.

Well, you'd have a point there if we were gonna ban all guns, which is not the case ..... but we're willing to entertain your ideas.
