Possibly because the legal users of guns do not use them as violently (on purpose or by accident) when compared to 'business criminals'.

This is starting to go offtopic but, I'd like to see data that shows that gun related death excluding accident are more linked to business criminals or gangs.

My current belief is most gun death are due to smaller things like family issues, neighboors getting in fights etc.
