The part of that statistic you ignore or simply do not know is about
2/3ds of those people kill themselves. When you drill down on the
murders, you find it is people nobody cares about, killing people
nobody cares about.
Neither of those facts are newsworthy enough to get on CNN.
The fact remains that we also stab more people than you do. That is
our second choice weapon here and the go to thing there.
We are simply a more violent society.
Maybe we should just deport a 100,000 of our "urban problem youths" to
UK and look at the number then. ;-)
You are still a relatively homogeneous population and it is even more
so on the other side of the channel where our people look for examples
of successful socialized countries.
And how, exactly, do you know this? According to this article, gun
crimes in the UK soared in 2012, or so says your Home Office. You
suppose they've gone down recently?
How much do you actually know about guns? My guess is zero.
The CDC reports that 65% of Americans are overweight or obese.
Clearly, Americans don't need guns to kill each other, they have refined carbohydrates.
And the most exercise these gluttonous slobs get is when they hobble from their Walmart handicap parking spot to the obesecycle parking area.
For example, I know a gun-nut whack-job that weighs over 300 pounds.
He's terrified someone will break into his house and kill him and then rape his wife and daughter.
The truth is that his real killer is his daily biggie-size order of fries.
He's just one french fry away from a heart attack but too stupid to realize it. Oink oink oink!
You are too easy...
