364,000 Dead

According to the Guardian, since the September 11 terrorist attacks, about 20 Americans have been killed by terrorists.  During that same period about 364,000 Americans have been killed by privately owned firearms (including suicides).

The commentator wonders - only partly tongue-in-cheek - whether it's enough of a humanitarian crisis that the international community should intervene.
