Gun culture in US

The second ammendment gives the citizens of US the right to bear arms for the security of a free state. This freedom to own guns has given rise to the phenomena of shoot-outs in schools and colleges and a very high crime rate in many cities of USA. The US has the highest number of guns per capita (90 guns per 100 people). Is it a coincidence that US also tops the firearm related death rate? I personally do not think that average citizens of the US will be able to secure the country better than the armed forces of US which is well trained and has superior technology.
