The math is there. you just said it, take the gun away and the deaths go down. They're not going to disappear just because we get rid of the gun and only the gun, because yes, people need to get their kill on. However if they're limited then odds are favourable for fewer casualties as a result of somebody's childish bloodlust. Guns accumulate responsibility when the user isn't responsible enough to know when not to use it.
That's like saying the car is to blame for people killed due to driving drunk.
