Of course unless they mean 'much less than half' when they say 'less than half', then about half of those deaths are suicides and justifiable homicides (*total* US homicide rate is around 8/100,000, or more like 20,000 than 44,000). Oh, and note the limitation to 'richest nations'.
Gotta twist those statistics to the anti-gun agenda...
