)Violent crimes US Britain

When I saw this…I did a Google search…and found this on Mail Online.

To be fair… the article says Australia has 92 violent crimes per 100,000.

I found this:

Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980-2008
Annual Rates for 2009 and 2010

If you scroll down to figure 42 in the link, there’s a breakdown of homicides by weapon. Handguns are the highest weapons used. Other weapons…such as rifles… are a lot lower.
After reading these things…I realized that banning weapons doesn’t necessarily reduce homicides. Arson, poison, and many other ways of murdering someone can take place.
