Didnt know about this until after New Years day. Imagine barely a second into 2013 and so many innocent bystanders and such, getting shot or stabbed to death at the hand of someone "celebrating" whatever. What a shame, civil world!

Hardly a matter about gun control, but moreso, an immoral society when we're supposed to be getting more civil, but majority aren't.

From coast to coast, some start out the new year grieving over homicides and bloodshed A 20-year-old man was fatally shot in the throat around 4 a.m. in Chicago, where at least nine others were wounded. Violence also erupted in New York; Sacramento, Calif.; Columbus, Ga.; Philadelphia; and Boston.

In Sacramento, a 22-year-old man was arrested after two people were killed and two others wounded in a shooting at a New Year’s Eve fireworks show, according to KOVR-TV.

In Columbus, Ga., seven people were shot, one fatally, at a New Year’s party at a sports bar, the Ledger-Enquirer reported. Police have said they believe there was more than one shooter.

The year began with blood in Philadelphia, too, where three people were gunned down within hours. Around 12:30 a.m., a 17-year-old boy was shot in the head in west Philadelphia, according to NBC10 Philadelphia, while two hours later, another man, who hasn’t been identified, was shot in the northeastern part of the city. Then, around 3 a.m., police responded to another shooting in north Philadelphia, where three people had been wounded. One later died at a hospital...

dude,

people die every other second, everyday.

If you list every homicide in any country of MILLIONS you will have a very long list for even the most peaceful country.

we started the new year like every year before it. Being human.

sounds great, ship happens! yet studies show otherwise:

www.washingtonpost.com...




The United States has by far the highest per capita rate of all developed countries. According to data compiled by the United Nations, the United States has four times as many gun-related homicides per capita as do Turkey and Switzerland, which are tied for third. The U.S. gun murder rate is about 20 times the average for all other countries on this chart. That means that Americans are 20 times as likely to be killed by a gun than is someone from another developed country.

Interesting how they mention Boston in the article. However, the homicide in Boston was a stabbing. No gun involved. Knife.

If you research each of these cases you may find an interesting correlation.

I've seen this misleading chart before!
What is misleading are the countries that are NOT included on the chart.
Being as ALL murders aren't included in these numbers is another misleading statistic.
You may note that killings by police/government aren't included in the statistics.
