It does matter. You guys apparently don't understand that we have the same things. If you are caught with an illegal handgun in the US, or if you steal a gun, that's still a violent crime.
We have the same non physical violent crimes, so WoogleUK is dead wrong. It isn't "non violent - violent crimes" inflating your numbers, because we have the same thing. What it is is the clear cut fact that the UK has more violent crime than the US per capita.
Sorry, I know you brits want to wiggle out of it, but its true.
