Death

Number of deaths in America in 2014 (1 pixel represents 1 death). 
At least it does in the original graphic, but this one has been scaled down by a factor of 4, 
which means each pixel represents 16 deaths.
Found this on graphical representation, which is a pro-gun blog. I think it gives a good picture of what's killing us, except it doesn't include automobile accidents or opioid overdoses or soldiers killed in combat, so lets see how big those are:
If we made a block at the same scale to cover these, that block would be this big:

Scaled block for other deaths.
I should have made a new block for these three categories, but I'm lazy, so I just scaled the other one down.

In spite of the fact that the number of traffic deaths per year is still outrageous, we should note that it has declined somewhat in recent years.
