Gun related crime is the key term, statistically is the other, but if you just look at crime statistics across the board I would rather live in a country where I could defends myself since police departments wont give me a personal body guard and the government is acting "questionable". Here are some good stats
I understand that the US is portrayed d as highly dangerous because of all the guns but to compare it to places like parts of Africa, Columbia or the PI is just Media Hype playing on the emotions of scared people who don't understand the 2nd amendment. As far as Im concerned the Media is just another tool in the arsenal of the UN.edit on 24-3-2013 by CSBowie because: miss spell
...and who's giving you those "statistics" If i were NWO, I would tell you that.
