After doing some research, your stats seem a little low (do you have a source?),
I do have a source http://www.bradycampaign.org/key-gun-violence-statistics , and if need be i can cite FBI statistics for you.
Ok, but people are still killed by knifes, cars and other forms of attack, besides as i said gun murders makes up 0.6% of deaths in the usa, it doesnt even register compared to most other causes of death.
Secondly civil liberties argument, because i know you as a fellow libertarian will heed it, if its nearly inconsequential on the large scale of going ons in society for a liberty to occur (which is the case with guns, more people die to car accidents then guns in the usa for example) then it is unjust to rob people of the means of self defense and their subsequent firearms. Which is what the UK law does, We dont ban things in a free society that barely register in causing deaths at the cost of everyones freedoms.

EDIT your example of Chicago is a terrible one as well, Chicago practices some of the strictest gun control in the usa, to the point were violated the 2nd amendment multiple times, which is fairly difficult to do considering the current supreme court precedent basically allowing states free reign over how guns are to be regulated.
