More than 342,439 people were shot to death in the United States from 2008 through 2017, meaning that a person is killed with a gun in this country every 15 minutes.
But the gun violence crisis in the United States is not monolithic; rates of gun violence vary widely from state to state, as does the character of that violence. Some states report relatively low rates of gun homicides but high rates of gun suicides, while other states have the exact opposite experience. Some states see both or neither trend, meaning overall high or low rates of gun violence across categories.
