Incorrect. Guns are used far more often to defend life and property than to take them. The reason you don't hear about this is that usually, drawing the gun is enough to drive off the criminal.
I wish I could find the actual study, but I know I've heard and seen cited that guns may be used (anything from drawn to used to kill) in self-defense as many as two million times per year in the US.[/quote]
And how many accidents do they cause?[/quote]
Far fewer. For example, more children die from drowning in bathtubs than from gun accidents. Bathtub drownings just don't make sexy TV.
Until they are.
