Did guns or vaccines save more lives in 2021?

Did guns or vaccines save more lives in 2021?
COVID-19 vaccinations are estimated to have saved around 300'000 lives in 2021 in the USA.
According to the famous study done by Gary Kleck in 1995, guns also save around 300'000 lives each year in the USA.
So, what do you guys think, did defensive gun use or COVID-19 vaccines save more lives in 2021?

The other question is, how many lives did guns take?

That's easy. Less than 50'000.

I’m not familiar with Kleck’s study. That doesn’t really matter, though, as I reject the premise. A more pertinent question would be, ‘Did guns or vaccines kill more people in 2021?’.

But what if someone gets vaccinated and then killed by a gun?
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

I'm ready to call troll with these ridiculous posts.

It never ends and the 'data' that gets presented is always flawed.

The following chart speaks for itself:

As with infant mortality, there is very little to argue with here.

Equating Kleck's definition of "defensive gun use" (at least the work I have familiarty of) with "life saved" is pure equivocation.
