Accidental Gun Deaths are at a Record Low.

We (CPRC) also found an error in the CDC data on accidental gun deaths that reduced the total measured number of accidental guns deaths in 2014 from 586 to 486. One state Tennessee had said that there were 105 accidental gun deaths when in fact the total number was only 5. Correcting the number for this one state reduced the total number of accidental gun deaths in the US to a record low.
