lol " they randomly selected 677 cases of Philadelphia residents who were shot in an assault from 2003 to 2006" That sure proves it right there ;) tiny percentage of PHILADELPHIA residents. Now, were you aware that in 2015 (that is more recent)out of 9 of the top 10 states for gun violence, over half were due to suicide? Living in a high crime area and accidents were next. murder by gun is very low. So, paranoia over gun ownership is made up by the left who desires to violate the 2nd Amendment .

That is funny, because it proves the fact that gun owners are more likely to be shot (by themself). You are the only one mentioning murder alone is pushing gun control. Again, you are wrong.
If someone wants to kill himself, first he should have the right , second, he will find a way without a gun. How about better mental health laws and harder stance on thugs instead of more stupid gun laws for law abiding citizens. Your wrong, again.
Accidental shootings *insert roll eye here* lol Murders in general...murder by gun would be even lower. imgflip.com/i/x1aur So your chance of dying by murder and with a gun is so low it might be deemed "Paranoia" to fear guns :)

Why do you keep thinking gun control is driven by fear of murder? I've just been explaining ways it isn't. It's driven by the fact lives can be saved. Comparing unavoidable causes of death with murder in a gun debate is a big fail of logic.
