For my position, though, I have the weight of the world. I want to ask you to explain these simple figures to me, in the context of gun control laws:
In the United States, there are, on average, 11,000 violent gun crimes per year.
In the United Kingdom, there are, on average, 70 violent gun crimes per year.
The United States has a population of 300 million.
The United Kingdom has a population of 70 million.
The United States has the most lax gun laws in the developed world. The United States has the highest violent gun crime rate of any nation on Earth. The United Kingdom has some of the most tight gun control laws on Earth. The United Kingdom has the lowest violent gun crime rates of any major nation on Earth ('major' excluding states like Vatican City, Luxembourg, etc.).
Explain this to me.
