America has the most gun freedom of any country.

Mexico has a total gun ban on citizens.
It is virtually impossible to get a gun permit in Brazil.
Colombia is more or less stricter than NY city.
Indonesia is strict gun control.
Russia can only have smooth-bore firearms initially.
Venezuela, no private gun ownership.
South Africa, 2 year wait for permit processing.
More or less same for Congo and Ethiopia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate

US total murders, 12k

Mexico, 25k
Brazil, 40k
Colombia, 15k
Indonesia, 18k
Russia, 14k
Venezuela, 13k
South Africa, 15k
Congo, 13k
Ethiopia, 20k

America has way more people than any of these countries one on one, but less murder.

America has more guns per citizen than any of these countries one on one, but less murder.

All the countries combined have roughly twice the US population. They total 173,000 gun murders vs Americas 12,000. Even if you double Americas murder rate to match their doubled population, you still get 173,000 vs 24,000.

How about the UK? Worse violent crime rate than the US, less gun rights.

It's a fact, more guns...less crime.


lol @ comparing the U.S. to third world countries.

the U.K may have higher violent crimes, but their Homocide rate is lower than ours.
would you rather a punch in the face or a bullet?

Games. Then I would help band everyone together and use the guns to overthrow the government and get my games back.

If I had to choose, games of course.

Banning guns won't stop gun violence. Only an idiot would think that way.


Do these things:
1) Look at countries where citizens aren't allowed to be in possession of firearms.
2) Look at their gun violence statistics.
3) TRY to argue that a gun ban wouldn't reduce gun violence.

Why are you comparing the US to third world countries and war zones? I think Canada, Australia and the UK would be more apt comparisons. They are rich white countries that share the same culture origins.

Guns. Can't tell you how much I hate the gun culture in this country.

It also comes down to the fact that I wouldn't trust 90% of the population with a butter knife let alone a gun.

Now, I can't say for certain, but I think pretty much everyone owns a butter knife. You must be in constant panic.
