    Murder Rates: Why Comparing The United States Only To Other Developed Countries Is Deceitful

    the whole comparison is deceitful since you can't really compare an apple to an orange, many other countries do not have the ethnic and cultural diversity America does, but you know, common sense.

    Statistics have to be used right.London has always had a lower murder rate even when they had little gun control and New York had.Violent crime including murder has gun despite/in-spite of the rise of popularity of guns in the U.S.Root crime of murder isn't gun, what is the root? Unconstitutional drug war? High prison sentences? Other prohibitions?

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
