    Murder rates are determined by basic socio‐cultural and economic factors rather than mere availability of some particular form of weaponry.

    Consider Norway and its neighbors Sweden, the Netherlands, and Denmark. Norway has far and away Western Europe’s highest household gun ownership rate (32%), but also its lowest murder rate. The Netherlands has the lowest gun ownership rate in Western Europe (1.9%), and Sweden lies midway between (15.1%) the Netherlands and Norway. Yet the Dutch gun murder rate is higher than the Norwegian, and the Swedish rate is even higher, though only slightly.

    As with abortion and divorce, it all comes down to social and especially economic stability.

    The second -- I'd like to see some facts for that. I just showed you a bunch of evidence supporting my point, now support yours. You never do, I don't know why I continue to ask...

    The third -- cities will always have higher crime rates than suburban and rural areas, no matter the laws. Grow up.

    Nice avoidance

    Also, since apparently it was ignored, I counter your claims of lessened gun control causing lower crime rates with my own information, which is a bit more recent than yours.

    The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence made a list of states with what they call lax gun control laws.

    This group is also pretty well spread out across the violent crime list.
    Do you really see an across the board correlation here?
