    Urban population is a factor. The largest factor in gun crime in America is the Trillion dollar drug market and gangs who regularly murder their competition (and inner city kids that get caught in the crossfire).

    It's not gun laws that are responsible for American gun crime, it's drug laws. Legalize recreational drugs and you eliminate driug-related gun crime, precisely the way we ended alcohol related gun crime when the abolished prohibition.

    Do traffic lights lead to a lot of gun-related crime in America? Maybe in LA.

    Correct; the UK has been frought with industrial scale violence for most of their history; large participants in both world wars most recently. Australia was founded as a penal colony.

    The US? Largely untouched by war.

    One would think that they would have the more violent societies. But I suppose that having seen industrial-scale violence up close has made the residents more resistant to inviting the weapons of that violence into their culture.

    The US has been at war for nearly its whole existence.

    What a load of crap.

    The vast majority of the murders in this country take place in poor urban areas plagued by crime. generational poverty, segregation. violence and a break down of the family

    As a country we really don't give a shit because the murders are mostly young urban minorities killing other young urban minorities

    No.... there culture so far has made them fairly peaceful. That is changing, if you look at the public shootings since the confiscation, the shooters tend to be foreign immigrants to Australia......which is funny in that they seem to be able to get illegal guns quite easily.

    We would actually have to have the democrats in charge of our cities lock up known, violent, repeat gun offenders for long periods of time, and not let them out on bail and out of jail in less than 3 years....if we did that, our gun crime rate would go lower than it already is.

    No.....our gun problem is due to a left wing belief that locking up violent gun offenders for long periods of time is unfair....and that encouraging single teenage mothers to raise young males without fathers is a good idea.....

    That causes the gun crime we have.

    That might seem obvious but you missed a factor.... The populations of Europe were dessimated by those 2 world wars...... males of child creating years were slaughtered in the millions, and their countries were laid to waste...twice. That stunted their development and kept their social welfare systems ahead of their ability to breakdown the family unit. Now, they are catching up to the U.S....their rate of single teenage mothers raising young males without fathers has reached a point that they can no longer civilize those young males....hence the ability of those males to stab each other to death...which will eventually lead to more and more shootings as well......and then throw in the importation of violent 3rd world males who do not respect Western Civilization and moral society......and then toss in the attack on British police, where they are cutting manpower, resources and hobbling them with P.C. culture to the point they have allowed thousands of British young girls to be gang raped for years by muslim gangs......and did nothing when they discovered it was happening...
