There are a few problems with the statement on that site.
First if you look at this graph that comes from the same page you can see that all the countries that have more crime rates are either Undeveloped or countries with a very small population.

In 2010, the amount of homicides in the US were between 14,000 and 16,000. 11,000 of those were homicides involving firearms.

Now, I'm not against guns, not at all. But the United States has a terrible attitude towards guns. For some reason, your country just can't handle it.

For example, about 30% of Canadian murder involved guns. About 70% of US murders involved guns.

So, lemme make you sure I'm reading this right;
US: Lots of guns, little bit of murder.

Go to source, see this:

Data Source: United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime: (Rates are for most recent year, since 2000, of available data.)

Follow link, download latest report. See that the source of the figures are from CTS but with the following footnote:

For the United States of America number of homicides by firearm is adjusted for limited coverage of homicide by firearm data by multiplying the total number of intentional homicides by the ratio of homicides by firearm.

I wonder why there is ‘limited coverage of homicide by firearm data’?

I hate to be THAT guy but, because many people are killed in third world countries, and gangster hellholes like some parts of Mexico, that makes it ok that their murder rate is like 50 times higher than most European countries? look how many countries is near 0 murders, guess what that's Europe. sometimes graphs doesn't show a true picture. and people who disagree, please ohh please show some numbers that shows that guns are good. Balotelli is tired of your crap

those murder statistics are wrong, cant believe people would thumb this either
User avatar #47 to #46 - rodneyphoenix (02/06/2013) [-]
Actually they're correct.

People like the Brady campaign lump all "gun related deaths" including suicides and police shootings together to make their numbers appear higher. It's called cold hard facts anon.

Molan labe.

I don't get the statistic. Of course we have a higher firearm crime rate, we have more guns. And countries with more vehicles have more car accidents then countries with less vehicles. The United States is actually fairly low on the list as far as crime percentage, see the following. The United Kingdom has a population of 62,641,000 people, and had 6,523,706 reported crimes. That is 10.4% of the population committing crime barring repeat offenders. The US has a population of 313,914,040, with 11,877,218 reported crimes for a % of 3.7%. Australia has a population of 22,620,600 with 552,411 reported crimes for a % of 2.4%. Canada has a population of 34,482,779 with 2,516,918 crimes reported for a % of 7.2. That means that out of the 4 of them the US comes in THIRD over all.

TL;DR-America has a very low over all crime rate statistic compared to most other first world countries.

Divers use spearguns. Very different. Assembling your own firearm from home made parts is a felony, and a big one. A CCW will not allow you to do certain things even if you do have it. Government buildings, schools, and businesses with posted signs are all illegal for you to enter. I am not telling you to NOT get a CCW, absolutely get one. iI have one myself, as well as a class III FFL. Just be mindful of your states laws, and be careful.

It doesn't count if you're comparing America to third world hellholes.
#118 to #105 - HOtaconE (02/06/2013) [-]
But anon, America is a third world hellhole! It's the only "modern" country without any kind of state funded healthcare!

Why the **** is finland that high on the list?
User avatar #130 to #93 - defeats (02/06/2013) [-]
It's high on the list for gun ownership, not firearm murders.

Am i the only one that wonder which country is that on top?
#59 - pyrusd (02/06/2013) [+] (1 reply)
Seeing a lot of bickering going on and I think people are not reading this graph right. The US is way on the right, meaning there are close to 90 firearms per 100 people. But it's also very low on the elevation with, eyeballing it, around 5 murders per 100,000 people.

That's not bad considering the data on the left which shows FEW firearms and TONS of murders. The highest rated dot is over 90 murders per 100,000 people and yet roughly 10 fire arms per 100 people. So this is basically pro-gun because we have tons of guns and few murders.
