30 deaths in a population of 36 000 000 = 8.5 x 10^-7% of the population
11 493 deaths in a population of 312 000 000 = 3.68 x 10^-5% of the population
Comparably that's 43 times as many firearm homicides per capita in the U.S. than Canada

Switzerland: 0.52 percent of homicides are caused by gun crimes, while everyone there owns one. (Canada's numbers are 0.5)

The huge problem with the USA is the black market, compared to gun laws. You can get a gun off of the black market for $70. Gun laws are very strict in some states (IL); yet still have huge gun crimes. It's similar to trying to outlaw drugs here. (And we all know how that's gone.)
