This is an extremely common fallacy. Notice what the words say: "Suicides are three times more likely than KILLING in self defense."
The fallacy is this: you don't have to KILL your attacker to defend yourself. Statistically, only 0.1 % (that's 1/10th of 1%) of defensive uses of a gun result in the attacker being killed.
That means that 99.9% of defensive uses of a gun are not figured into your statement.
