Hillary Clinton on Gun Violence & Clinton's Emails: First Democratic presidential debate

In talking about the need for stronger gun control, Clinton said: "I think that we have to look at the fact that we lose 90 people a day from gun violence. This has gone on too long and it's time the entire country stood up against the NRA." Annual gun deaths do average about 90 people a day, but only a third of those are homicides.

According to the most recent figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were a total of 33,636 firearm deaths in 2013. That's 92 per day for the year. Sixty-three percent of them, or 21,175, were suicides. Homicides totaled 11,208, and the rest were unintentional discharges (505), legal intervention/war (467) and undetermined (281).
