The Gateway Law team down in San Diego, California has crafted an interesting infographic with help from the National Safety Council. The graphic illustrates, for those of us who think about the chances of dying under any given number of circumstances, how likely we are to die from some of the leading causes of death.

You are much more likely to o die of cancer, suicide, unintentional poisoning, car crash or a fall than being killed by a firearm.
