It's ok. The mind works in good ways too. Time heals all and it's so easy to say this as a normal conversation. No sadness.

Okay?

Americans: 315,238,251
UK: 62,641,000

The gun laws and culture are different there. Your notation has no merit.

You have approx 5x the population, and approx 220x gun related deaths.

Yes, gun laws are different here, they are much stricter.

THUS

Stricter gun laws in the US will lower gun related deaths. Pretty sound logic brah.

Tell that to Australia.

Placed strict gun laws in 2002, then saw their highest gun crime rate EVER in 2006.

Still sound logic? Nah. There are way more factors than just that.

Would you like to know more?

I'd like to see their statistics over a longer period of time, because the UK / US comparison is pretty consistent. I'd put your example down to simply the trouble that would arise from the early stage of that law's introduction.

What happens when you compare the murder/crime rates in general?

Can't say I can recall ever hearing about cops getting killed by grenades in the US...

EDIT: Besides, how many of those gun deaths in the US are a result of self-defense?

That was pretty much a one off by some crazy guy. And that only happened because the information the police had at the time was incorrect, and the mad dude made a prank call to the police to get the officers to come to the house unarmed.
