Three out of four justifiable homicides involved firearms, CNN reports, citing the FBI’s unified crime report

Of the 260 justified homicides in 2011, 201 involved a gun.

The rate is much higher among police, CNN reported.

Guns were involved in 99.2% of justifiable homicides, or 390 out of 393.

The statistics will likely be cited by gun-rights groups who say firearms are an effective defensive tool, according to CNN.
