One big difference is that many (if not most) of the gun deaths are on purpose - homicides vs. accidents. Another is that guns - unlike cars or booze - are weapons, and therefore killing is their primary purpose.

There are lots of other differences, more than enough to make the "other things kill too" argument ridiculous. They're simply not the same thing.
