And, there's plenty more. Vox provided several charts and statistics about gun violence and gun ownership in the United States:

"America's unique problem with gun violence: American has six times as many firearm homicides as Canada, and 15 times as many as Germany... America has 4.4 percent of the world's population, but almost half of the civilian-owned guns around the world... There is a mass shooting almost every day in America... States with more guns have more gun deaths... States with tighter gun control laws have fewer gun-related deaths... In states with more guns, more police officers are also killed on duty..."
