Gun control: US vs. UK

A new shooting happened today in Orlando, right after Donald J. Trump criticized the gun policy in the UK. Let's compare the gun control policy of the US with the UK's.

    That 60% of deaths caused by guns in america only 10% of it is our citizens with illegal guns killing someone 5% are legal carrying citizens and the other 45% is our fucking police killing us off. The 10% of gun related crimes is all there police. About 1% is there recent terrorist attacks

    Firearm deaths are lower but stabbings beatings, and rape are all up.. people don't have guns so they use something else.. and no one who is obeying law have a gun to defend themselves. Plus cops shootings are included in the US statistic.

    1. Someone shoots at you. 2. You shoot back. 3. Or, if you don't have a gun, you die. Welcome to Liberaland.

    I'd like to see the comparative homicide rates per country, not just selective facts

    Now remove Chicago from those statistics and gun homicides are a virtual non-issue in this country. We don't have a gun problem, we have a couple shitty cities.

    I'm so glad this comment section isn't full of idiots that just believe everything they are told.

    We didn't ban assault rifles after an American shooting,we banned assault rifles after Michael Ryan murdered innocent people in hungerford uk. Google it..😉

    60%????this is why the gun debate is so disingenuous 62% of all gun murders in the US are suicide then about another 15% are self defence shootings the rest is straight murder and the majority of that violence is gang related so when dickheads like piers Morgan say there are 33'000 gun murders a year in American try more 8'000. 2.5 million self defence shooting a year well there isn't really are database for it but that's about estimated figure.so in my opinion the rewards out weighs the risk and.0.06% of all crime in the US is murder 0.02% of that is mass shootings you have more chance of being hit by lightning multiple times on the same day then being involved in a mass shooting.cars.alcohol.playing football puts you more at a risk of death then owning a gun.and the fact I am in U.K. we need some gun rights just because there bad people in the world does not mean I should lose the right to defend my life.i say this to people in American never ever let your gun rights be taken from you fight fight fight.or you get held ransom by a sick twisted religion

    Pretty sure that shooting was done with a pistol, yet you're showing pictures of big, black, scary rifles. Shill harder.

    There's always an excuse from a gun wielding American.

    I myself have never really seen the point of the US love of guns but fair is fair most people do not understand my love of martial arts so if your going to compare crime figures at least have the decency to do it properly.Like how many people in both countries are victims of knife attacks per 1000,000 and the suicide rate etc etc population pays a big part the UK is what somewhere around 70 million the US 350 million. How many killing with legally owned fire arms as opposed to illegal ones stuff like that

    If you don't want guns there at least carry knives to defend yourselves. Those are YOUR people the terrorists are killing. The cops don't show up until AFTER the attack. At least with a knife, or stick or club or something you'll have something to defend yourselves with. Don't waste time worrying about what politicians spout off. Ours are as stupid as yours. Focus on ISIS not TRUMP. Our gun issues are our gun issues here in America. You do what you do there and we do what we do here.

    I read a study that stated that people that own a bunch of guns tend to have lower IQs. I know. It's a totally unfair assessment. ...until you consider all the lead...
