But your information is deceptive in reality regarding fair comparisons. The UK has risen to around 3% as of late. But no need to dispute it due to the following information. And if you average it out comparing population of cities that have over 200,000+ population where the violent crime rates are higher compared to the average. The UK has around 38 such populated cities while the US has 187 such populated areas. So if you do some math based on population the US's Homicide rate is around 4.3. If you figured the UK to have 187 areas as the US your homicide rate per capital would be somewhere about 7.9% figured on the figures. So that is also where the liberals in American who are trying to attack our Second Amendment figures from are incorrect figuring over all numbers of metro areas US = 180 compared to UK = 38. Otherwise they are inaccurately comparing the homicide rate compared to the population of these areas in the US. US = 37,400,000 to the Uk's population in those areas of 7,600,00 With these added areas of population the US has 4.9 times the population area as that of UK. Not to mention, from the beginning of 2000 our homicide rate has dropped 50%. Probably because the criminal realizes that more than not, he is not praying on an innocent unarmed victim. It is called self preservation and he would rather pick a soft target that can not defend themselves. The 50% reduction is admirable, but the politicians do not mention that because it would reveal their present ruse and attack on Constitutional Rights! So the figures of the UK and the US are certainly not comparing apples to apples and your firearms rights in the UK are less than desirable. And figured out fairly and with reality more incidents per population in the UK.
Big Bird this is your answer about the UK. Several weeks ago I did some study due to the fact the anti-gun folks who are attempting to attack our Second Amendment. Got sick and tired of them trying to deceive the American public by the UKs rate. Nothing wrong with our friend from the UK but our politicians as usual, are being deceptive. Of course as of late we can tell when they are being deceptive! It is when they are moving their mouth! In addition the chart was taken form the World Health Organization which no doubt is capable of some manipulation due to their associations with other organizations throughout the world. Finally regardless of the despute possible over rates you can not compare the two comparing the 38 areas to that of 187.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
