What's the murder rate in the US compared to the UK? I think those figures would be interesting.
As of 2011, out of 72 countries, UK is rank #13 in murder rate (lower number being less crime) and USA is #28, with the UK having 62 million population, and USA have 311 million. So, at minimum, there are 44 more countries in the world that have a higher murder rate than America, it's a pretty civil place to live against both countries with high gun regulation and without.
On a side note, it's burning hot here tonight for some reason. Summer is here, sure, but it's never this hot. I actually have my screens open.
