it is interesting to observe how often gun deaths occur in various countries. I've attached gun death stats for the Top 20 countries, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_firearm-related_death_rate, (average gun deaths per 100k people, per year).
The only country from that top 20 list of "distinction" which I definitely wouldn't expect there is Switzerland.
But nearly all where suicides. And they should not be included here (IMO)
Same for the USA -- these numbers reflect "homicides" which include suicide. The remainder are mostly gang crimes -- gangs killing gangs -- these are criminals that are not deterred by laws against their possessing guns. That goes for the USA, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, . . .
I am saddened by senseless violence of all types, be it gun, machete, or suicide bomber.
