If you have watched any major news station within the past six months you are well aware that firearms and the safety of firearms are a hot topic in the United States.

According to the infographic below, guns have a large impact on the society. In 2009 more than 30,000 people died from guns; 554 were an accident, 18,735 were suicides, and 11,493 were homicides.

American firearm sales and concealed handgun permit applications are at an all-time high since the 2008 election of President Barak Obama.
