The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609.
Well would you look at that. The two top violent countries in the world either ban guns or severely restrict their ownership and use. The part that surprised me was that Canada has a higher rate of crime than the US.
And the gun haters want us to be like (once) Great Britain? Hell, we aren't even in the top ten. I bet that has something to do with that 2nd Amendment thing that a bunch of them hate so bad.
