Who are victims of gun violence?

Referring to the Page 1 Forum article of June 29, “High court ruling puts gun bans at risk,” the Supreme Court ruled that “... Chicago’s long-standing gun ban violated an individual’s right to own firearms ...” In dissent Justice Stephen Breyer noted that handguns cause an estimated 60,000 deaths and injuries each year.

My question: How many of those deaths and injuries are caused by honest citizens, those who are affected most by gun laws?
