There is absolutely no way that america is #103 on the list of homicides. Everyone is also like hey 4.7 not bad, but when u say 5ish out of every 100,000 people are murdered well then it takes on a different view. Guns are the problem whether the states will admit it or not. You have gun totting redneck ***** and kids that are bullied so hey why not kill everyone. If the states had better gun laws and made guns less accessible then maybe people wouldn't be killing each other all the damn time. Its not even like you would use most of the guns for hunting anyways. I live in Canada and stabbings occur maybe twice a year where someone dies. Last time there was a gun murder was 2 years ago in my city anyways.

Just ignoring the fact that you have completely missed the point that more guns =/= more murder, there are 270,000,000 guns out there right now. America can't even make handing out healthcare work, how do you plan on making guns "less accessible"?

Every purchased gun in America is perfectly suited to hunting, from small game to large game to fowling (small rifle, large rifle, shotguns) with the exception of pistols. Many pistols are still used for hunting, but less accuracy means you have to be closer. There are no legal "assault weapons" in this country as the idiot media would have you believe.

And if you didn't read, there was Harvard study that showed a negative correlation between guns and violent crime.

Where is your argument? Why should we have gun control when violent crime has been dropping for the long time now, and states that have less gun control have less crime?

correlation does not equal causation

But regular trends and successive trials do point to a causation.

also on top of that, that police thing and error rates. 800000 police officers at 11% or 80 millions at 2% error. if that were my options for banking id choose the 80 million because its a higher amount. Lets say the police **** up and there are 80 some thousand mess ups at 11% how about over a million **** ups by the average gun owning citizen.
