One thing I think that gets overlooked in this never ending argument is.........
Population numbers......We have over 300,000,000 people here in the US.
The population of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is 60,776,238 according to The World Almanac and Book of Facts,
That figure is for the population of the UK. The population of the island of Great Britain is not routinely available, probably somewhere in the
region of 59 million.
63 million in great Britain
i would say about 4
The population of the UK on June 1st 2010 is approximately 62,598,810
On 1 October 2009, Australia's population reached 22 million. See the related link for the news story on this important milestone for the country.
As of June 2012, the estimated population of Australia is 22,649,643.
There is not even any comparison.
I know that the studies say out of every hundred thousand. Well I believe that those numbers are skewed because the US has more "hundreds of
Lets not forget that it seems that most of the gun deaths come from inner city gang rivalries. I wont even look that one up because I know it is
There were at least 30,000 gangs and 800,000 gang members active across the USA in 2007, up from 731,500 in 2002 and 750,000 in 2004. By
1999, Hispanics accounted for 47% of all gang members, Blacks 34%, Whites 13%, and Asians 6%.
Here is an old article about the nuber of gang members in the UK. For some reason it is difficult to find a new number, hmm I wonder why that
Alarming figures suggest there are now as many as 30,000 gang members across England and Wales and the numbers are rising rapidly. The number of
gang members aged under 16 has doubled in the past year and nearly half of all gang murders committed with firearms now involve victims under the age
30,000 gang members compared to 800,000 does not even compare people.
I think that the point I am trying to make is, other countries populations do not even compare to us here in the US. We have more gangmembers here in
the us then some countries have citizens. Our cultures are different, It seems that young americans think that they are deserving of "the good life"
and this all comes down to television making money seem like it is the cure for your life problems. uneducated people turn to the only thing that they
know how to make alot of money in the least amount of time, and that is............drugs and prostitution.
People can keep bickering about there are more murders here involving guns, yes that is because there are several times more people here than anywhere
else that are in the debate of gun control(other than Russia and China of course).
More people = more crazies= more violence= more murders= more air time on the nightly news. We all know how the nightly news has a hard on for the
I have one regret in my life and that is, I will not be able to purchase a firearm. I made a couple of bad decisions in my younger years that were non
violent and because of that someone decided that I do not deserve the right to own a firearm. All the while if I really wanted on and didn't care
about the law, I could have one faster and cheaper than if I did follow the law.
We live in a screwed up socitey where everyone thinks that they are better than everyone else(with a few exceptions of course). With this kind of
thinking we are always goping to have people that will do anything to be the best and prove that they will do anything to stay the best in whatever
they say and do. Until someone comes and outdoes them by getting rid of them,. It is a never ending cycle and It does not matter if there are firearms
Wasn't it in Ireland where they would just blow you and every other innocent bystander to smitherteens with a massive bomb blast? Were guns involved
Anyways I am rambling on and I hope that I made some kind of point throughout these ramblings.
Man I wish I could go hunting with a firearm
