Okay, 30,000-40,000 gun homicides (and yes, I filtered suicides out of that number, we're talking purely murders) occur in the US a year, the US has a population for 327.2 million right now roughly speaking. At the very most, about 0.012% of the population right now is effected by gun homicides, the majority of that being gang related violence committed with handguns.
In 2018, about 300 people died in mass shootings (a mass shoooting being defined as any shooting where four or more people die in the same location at relatively the same time), this means that despite the news media acting like mass shootings are a massive epidemic threatening to genocide all of America, only about 0.0001% of all people in America are killed by mass shootings.
Guns are statistically a complete non-issue.
