I cant go along with this, the "study" uses the terms can,possibly,may, suspicions and some far to often.Tiz all bollocks:laugh: What you have in Merica is too many nutters running around tooled up. The French and Italian police are armed, take a look at the stats. The single biggest difference between all of the countries is the guns that are in the hands of the public, way to many Rambos, crims and nutters with firearms your side of the pond , tiz the fault of the Founding Fathers apparently
Zackly what 'point' do you think you're making???
PER YOUR LINK:
Homicides by firearms per 100K people:
El Salvador: 39.90
Uruguay: 7.03 (pop: 3,429,000)
USA: 6.70 (pop: 320.09 million!!!)
Now, if one takes into account the TOTAL NUMBER OF GUNS supposedly in each of those countries (supposedly there are 310 million guns in the USA) and compares that to the number of citizens in each of those individual countries - there IS NO "gun problem" in the USA!
But, as The Colonel pointed out - that's not the TOPIC we're addressing right now...
