Murders by Type of Weapon Used [FBI Statistics 2011]

"...the percentage of overall deaths that were the result of falling off things like rocks and ladders was 1 percent, or nearly three times the percentage of deaths that were gun-related [all guns]: 26,631 versus 8,583."

Child Mortality in U.S. [Nat'l Center for Health Statistics]
Given the number of children murdered/year by firearms (2,186) it would take almost A THOUSAND YEARS to reach two million ("millions"). But assault rifle murders are a miniscule amount of all murders; it would be more like TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS. How about we focus on the big numbers: congenital anomalies and childhood diseases.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
