Is it worse to be killed by a gun?

What is so evil about being killed by an AR with a large capacity clip that makes it so much worse than being bludgeoned with a bat?
Sure, Britain may have had 58 GUN murders last year, but England, Wales, and Scotland had a total of 691 murders for 2010. Fifty years ago, when the British had private gun ownership, the murder rate there was half of what it is now. By getting rid of privately owned guns, the positive effect on murder in Britain has been zero.
