    So getting beaten to a pulp and having to eat through a straw the rest of your life isn't a violent crime because you didn't die?

    Guns do not kill people.

    Crimes and deaths by guns in UK is a small fraction compare per capita in the US.

    No way around it.

    So what?

    I really don't care about what happens in the UK.

    But I will say it again. There are far more variables that influence crime rates than guns alone.

    Then you don't like being informed, silly you. I agree with your last sentence.

    Post some data of your own to back up your point. In this easily comparable category of violence, the US leads the UK, a situation a poster was not aware of.

    Informed about what?

    Nothing that happens in the UK has any effect on me whatsoever.

    I don't really care that their gun crimes are rising and you don't either

    United Kingdom vs United States: Crime Facts and Stats

    Total crimes per 1000 in the UK is 3 times more than the US.

    But I'm sure you think those are all nonviolent crimes right?

    UK assault victims 2 times more than the US

    But those are nonviolent assaults right?

    UK rape victims 2 times more than the US

    But those are all nonviolent rapes right?

    Those are death (homicide) rates, not violence (violent crime) rates, you idiot.
