  • Internationally, gun violence may be broadly defined as violence committed with the use of a gun (firearm or small arm). It may or may not be considered criminal. Criminal gun violence includes homicide (except when and where ruled justifiable), assault with a deadly weapon, and suicide, or attempted suicide, depending on jurisdiction. Non-criminal gun violence may include accidental or unintentional injury or death. Included in this subject are statistics regarding military or para-military activities, as well as the actions of civilians.According to GunPolicy.org, 75 percent of the world's 875 million guns are civilian controlled. Many guns are owned for legitimate reasons, and most are not misused. However, the 875 million guns, including the 25 percent that are government controlled, are used to kill as many as 1,000 people daily. Globally, millions are wounded or denied basic services and human rights through the use of guns.Levels of gun violence vary greatly among geographical regions, countries, and even subnationally. The United States has the highest rate of gun related deaths per capita among developed countries, though it also has the highest rate of gun ownership and the highest rate of officers.
  • 槍支暴力字面上的定義是使用槍支威脅、施以暴力、或者造成傷害。「槍枝暴力」一詞也泛用於槍枝政策辯論的背景以用來描述槍枝濫用所造成的傷害。槍支暴力可大致定義為利用火器進行暴力及犯罪的事實;該定義可或者不可包括歸類為自衛、執法行動、或者安全合法使用火器作為運動、打獵、以及打靶等的舉動。槍支暴力包括兩種蓄意犯罪:兇殺(儘管並非所有兇殺案都自動被視為犯罪)和以致命武器攻擊,以及來自火器的不當使用造成的非蓄意性傷害或死亡,這種情況在兒童和青少年居多。定義上深一層的混亂往往是在槍枝「暴力」上整個統計將涉及自我蓄意造成的槍傷數據(包括自殺及企圖自殺)故意包括在內所造成的。「槍支暴力」一詞曾被評為有傳達政策的傾向,因為該詞將罪犯在暴力攻擊中扮演的角色模糊化,反而強調他選擇哪種工具;照這種用法,若在討論汽機車撞人兇殺案時,也可使用「汽機車暴力」一詞,故是不合理的。對比之下,「槍枝犯罪」一語一直為槍枝管制與擁槍權政策主張人士兩者長年下來沿用,不過強調不同地方:前者強調透過頒布並堅持合理的法令來達成降低槍枝暴力的目標,而後者則透過從重量刑或者其他方法支持掃除罪犯的需求。槍支暴力在整個世界的水平差別很大,在南非和哥倫比亞發生率非常高,而泰國、瓜地馬拉、以及許多其他發展中國家發生率則屬高。新加坡、智利、新西蘭、和其他許多國家槍支暴力水平低。美國在已開發國家之中有著最高的發生率,這得歸因於美國相較其他已開發國家較為鬆散的槍枝法之故。
