Is this fair?

Shouldn't feminists be upset?
The latest figures available indicate that the risk of death involving firearms is declining in Canada and was a fraction of the U.S. rate.

Statistics Canada says that in 2000, the rate of homicide involving a gun in the United States was 3.8 for every 100,000 population, nearly eight times Canada's rate of 0.5 for every 100,000 people.

In Canada, homicides accounted for 18 per cent of deaths involving firearms in 2000, compared with 38 per cent in the United States.

The report says that in Canada in 2002 there were 767 males and 49 females who died from injuries related to firearms.
Quite an imbalance, no?
