Accidents probably accounts for a fair amount of deaths, but don't you think the gun = security paradigm has to be challenged a bit when you look at the data? There has to be something wrong somewhere to get results that are so different from other countries when we look at the per capita data on weapon possession and death by gun.
More guns = more opportunities for accidents and violent death in the same way more cars = more opportunity for car accidents and road rage.
It is hard to conclude that, overall, guns = safety.
