In 2016, Opioids killed 10% more people than guns did. 40% of the opioid deaths involved a prescription opioid and 40% of the gun deaths were NOT suicide. Semi-automatic rifles and all other rifles accounted for only 374 of the over 11,000 gun-related deaths in 2016. An increase in gun deaths leading to 2016 coincides with the increase in opioid deaths.
