More guns equals more gun deaths, on average.  The US has 1.13 guns per capita (the highest listed) and 10.5 gun deaths per 100,000 per year (the 11th highest).

 
Excepting Kuwait, all 19 countries with over .22 guns per capita have over 1 gun deaths per year.

 
All 11 countries with under .045 guns per capita have 1 gun death per year or fewer.

 
Based on these average outcomes, the US could potentially avoid some 90% of its gun deaths by getting rid of some 95% of its guns.
