said by tshirt:And how should she have done that? Her son killed her. Once you are dead any protection you may have for your weapons (and anything) is lost.
Sandy Hook (one of the events that brought gun control to the attention it no gets) probably would not have happened had the mother recognized her responsibility to restrict her sons access to her weapons.

The peak firearms deaths I recall seeing reported (but I stumbled across this number a few years back, and can't recall the source) was ~33,000; and that was homicide and suicide combined.
CDC says ... homicide by gun is approx. 47k and suicide by gun is 23,500+.
Now waiting for the ... "but 1 is 1 too many" argument. But if you want U.K. numbers you will need U.K.-style restrictions; which will make liars of every politician claiming to not want to take firearms away from USAian owners. You simply can't achieve U.K. comparable results without seizure of at least 280 million USAian firearms.
