I gave you official UN statistics... you gave me list of HOMICIDES moron.
If your overall murder rates are as far off as your gun murder rates are, adjusting for that puts UK more or less on par with the US. not
it does not. US has 5x more murder in general and 600 times more gun kills....
Any statement in support of banning guns is shortsighted and naive. IT WORKS EVERYWHERE
Europe is also a bad comparison because many of the nations in Europe have significantly more crime per capita than the United States do. Note 'Per Capita.' The graph in the link offers both; US is the highest in total number of crimes but also has a significantly larger population than the European nations. Disclaimer: Data in link is from 2002
You cannot compare general crime because that is state of law. Many things that are considered crime in the UK are not crime in the US...
Why don't you compare murder rates? Gun kills? Last time I checked US had 600x more gunkills than UK...
statistics are done per 100 000 people so the overall population does not matter. Strict gun law does equals less dead people. It always does and every where.
Because otherwise US would have to be the safest place on Earth with lowest crime rates ....
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
