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.
For comparisons to be realistic I think it is fair that we only include first world nations and measure by how many murders per 100,000 people.
Russia is no.1, Estonia 2, US 3, Latvia 4, Finland 5, Canada 6, Czech Republic 7, New Zealand 8, UK 9, Australia 10.
The USA's murder rate is almost 5x Australia's. Why is this?
