*Is the U.S. Gun Homicide Rate Really That High? In 2011, the U.S. had 11,101 homicides committed with firearms, which amounted to about 70 % of all homicides. That’s a rate of about 3.6 gun killings per 100,000 people. Whether that rate seems high to you depends upon your perspective. The U.S. isn’t the country with the most gun murders, by any stretch — that would be Honduras, which has 68.4 gun killings per 100,000 people, 19 times the U.S. rate. And there are a bunch of other countries with higher rates than the U.S., such as Mexico, Colombia, the Philippines and South Africa. Compared to other industrialized democracies, the U.S. gun homicide rate is through the roof. It’s more than four times the rate in Italy, six times that of Canada and about 30 times the rate in Great Britain or France. So would the crime rate in the U.S. be lower if there were fewer guns available? Again it depends on which study you consult. Burglary and assault rates are higher in Britain than in the U.S., but homicide rates are much lower.
*Are There Countries With as Many Guns as the U.S. but Less Crime? No, because there isn’t another country in the world with as many guns as the U.S. The U.S. comprises 5 % of the world’s population, but owns between 35 and 50 % of the world’s civilian firearms. The rate of about 97 guns per 100 people is tops in the world, with only the unstable Persian Gulf nation of Yemen (90 per 100) coming even close. So let’s reframe the question. Are there countries with relatively high gun-ownership rates and low crime rates? Yes. Finland, which has 69 guns per 100 people, and Switzerland, which has 61 per 100 people. Finland had just 14 gun homicides in 2010, a rate of 0.26 per 100,000 people. In Switzerland, with 40 gun killings in 2010, had a slightly higher rate of 0.52 per 100,000. But both those countries have stricter gun control laws than the U.S.

  1. There is no debate. There are people who know the facts, and there are the Zionist’s brainwashing victims.

    I think it’s wiser to just shoot the brainwashed idiots than debate with them.

    Did you ever try to have a sensible conversation with a shaven-headed, sheet-clad Hare Krishna? The only difference with the college kids is that they didn’t shave their heads yet, but there’s still no chance of a sensible discussion that relies on fact and logic.

    Their “gun grabbing” beliefs are a religion that defies any fact-based discussion. All the data in the world won’t change their belief that the world would be a pretty place if they could only disarm everyone but their hero cops. They’re a danger, and they need to be de-programed before any sensible discussion can begin.

    These idiots still worship Obama after he’s done all in his power to screw their lives over. Do you really think you can sensibly debate anything with these mind-control victims?

  2. I think it’s wiser to just shoot the brainwashed idiots than debate with them.

    Yes, JR as I have said in the past, “find evil and kill it,” no talking, you’ll know it when it talks, then kill it.
    These people are caught in the “EGOIC-MIND” in this state common sense is destroyed. What takes place in the brain is a unbalance of chemicals and you telling some walking dead person to think differently is like pissing up a rope.

  3. With JR and Joe. No debate necessary. Only solutions. Rationalizing with irrational minds is futile. Kill it and move on or get sucked into a never ending war of irrational words and pointless precious time wasted.
