"From 2009 to 2017, there was a mean of 85 694 emergency department visits for nonfatal firearm injury and 34 538 deaths each year.
Assault was the most common overall mechanism (38.9%), followed by unintentional injuries (36.9%) and intentional self-harm (19.6%)."
"These findings suggest that assaults and unintentional injuries account for most nonfatal and overall firearm injuries and for most of the injuries that are treated in hospitals."
