Gun Control: An International Comparison

Paid Advertisement

The United States has the loosest gun control laws of all developed countries. In the US, there are virtually as many guns as there are people. According to FBI crime statistics, 8,775 of the 12,996 murders that occurred in the U.S. in 2010 were caused by firearms.

With a gun being the weapon of choice in so many of the homicides in the United States, consider other countries, with stricter gun control laws, and how murders involving firearms there are much lower.

Japan – In Japan, most kinds of guns are illegal, and almost no one owns a gun. Japan is known as one of the strictest gun controlling nation in the world, with only 0.6 firearms per every 100 people. In 2006, there were only two homicides caused by guns in Japan. In 2008 there were 11. The country has nearly eliminated murder by firearms.

United Kingdom – The rate of private gun ownership in the United Kingdom is 6.72 firearms per 100 people. In 2009, only 18 people were murdered with a firearm. Within the last 14 years, the year with the highest number of gun caused homicides was 2004, with 52 people killed.

Australia – Ranked at No. 25 in comparison of number of privately owned guns in 178 other countries, about 15 out of every 100 Australians owns a firearm. Annual homicide rates involving firearms in the country is relatively low, at 0.1% per every 10,000 in 2009.

Germany – Ranked No. 4, in a comparison of the number of privately owned guns in 178 other countries, approx. 30 out of every 100 people in Germany own a firearm. Germany experiences far fewer gun related homicides annually than the United States. In 2010, there was a total of 158 homicides committed with a firearm.

United States – The United States is ranked at No. 1 for civilian gun ownership in comparison with all other industrialized countries. There are approximately 88.8 firearms for every 100 people in the U.S. In the past 14 years, the year with the greatest number of homicides caused by a firearm occurred in 2006, when 10,225 people were killed by the use of a gun. Annual firearm suicides within the United States are high as well. In 2005, 17,002 suicides were committed using a firearm.

The United States far surpasses other countries in terms of gun related violence and death. The numbers above tend to indicate that fewer gun-related homicides is a direct result of stricter gun control laws.

A particular quote by Benjamin Franklin says,

Although the freedoms enjoyed in this country must be protected and upheld, statistics show that personal security within the United States is greatly hampered by lenient gun control laws.

Love the way you use percentage per 100 or 1000 or 10,000 or 100,000 UNTIL you got to the USA; there you use ACTUAL NUMBERS, boy it makes it look BAD when you do that. So we have to do the math ourselves to find that with a population of 300 million there are a small amount of murders per 100,000 3.408333 per 100,000? Is that about right???  That doesn't sound that high to me?  Guns DO NOT KILL! ONLY PEOPLE KILL!!  People use guns to kill because they ARE EFFECTIVE!  Murder has always happened and will always will!  The USA 2nd Amendment is to protect the Citizens of the United States from Tyrannical Government, not for hunting, not even for protection...

What does the US have, I'll give you a hint, 13% of population responsible for 70% of gun crimes, thay those other countries do not have. Eliminate the actions of this 13%, and we are far lower in gun related atrocities than all of the nations with strict gun laws.

First the murders were not caused by guns, they were committed using guns. Second you are using the wrong comparisons. Of course they have less murders using guns if all the guns are confiscated.  The real comparison is the murder rates before and after. If the total rate did not go down, it made no difference. I know that is the case for Australia, but I don't know about the rest.I don't think it matters what they were murdered with. Meaningless numbers in your stats.

I wish the government (the police) can prevent the criminals from obtaining firearms. The laws on the books are not enforced, the justice systems refuse to hand down the prescribed punishments when the criminals are convicted. The justice system seem always find some way to reduce their sentences. Imagine, people who consume a substance into their own body; they are not harming anyone else, but are often punished more harshly than the criminal who possesses a firearm and harm another person. I agree that when a person who use any substance, are impaired and harm another person in any way, they should be punished. It seems to be easier for the government to deny a law abiding citizen their constitutional right to have a firearm; we have the right to protect ourselves. The government should enforce the laws preventing the criminals from obtaining firearms, identifying the people with mental problems and prevent them from also obtaining firearms.

I agree with Ken..."Do we really care how many people are killed with guns, or do we care more about how many people are killed, regardless of what tools are used".  


It's like saying tons of people get killed from drunk drivers so we should all get our drivers license taken away...


We should care about how many people are getting killed not what tools they use

@jersey1020 Nice try.  Look at the overall murder rates in other developed countries - they are much lower than ours. And other developed countries don't have the problem of mass murders committed with guns the way we do.  In the UK, it was a nationally followed tragedy when a lone gunman killed several people because that was unheard of.  In this country killing a few people with a gun might not make the national news.

@jersey1020 And yes, I am aware that Norway suffered a huge tragedy in 2011 committed by a lone gunman. However, that was their first such tragedy (and by far their worst) ever.

@MaliaEbel @jersey1020 What do you mean "nice try." Are we here to talk about saving lives or not? Either you want gun control because you want to save lives, or not. So let's save as many lives as possible instead of running against the wall of resistance that is gun control. Heck, we might find that gun deaths decrease while we're doing it.


He's got a good point. More people are killed by fists and hammers then rifles (rifles, not all guns) and more people are killed altogether by traffic accidents then by all gun deaths combined (at the moment). You only have about a 1 in 300 chance of dying via a firearm, but accidentally overdosing on prescription pills scores you a 1 in 139. Stroke? 1 in 28 and Cancer has a chance to kill you at 1 in 7. Imagine if we dumped tons of money into saving peoples lives from the number one killer in America! The dreaded Heart Disease. 1 in 6 chance you'll die from that.

If we're serious about saving lives, there are more efficient areas to begin with.

While Archie Bunker was written as a joke, showing the senselessness of the views he supposedly held, stop and consider carefully his reply to his daughter when she lectured him on the number of people killed in the US with firearms: "Would it make you happier, little girl, if they was pushed out of windows?"  It got a real laugh, but think about it.  Do we really care how many people are killed with guns, or do we care more about how many people are killed, regardless of what tools are used?  While greater availability of guns logically suggests that more killings would be committed with guns, it suggests nothing about the total number of killings.  The unfortunate fact is that certain segments of the US population are significantly more violent than others, either in the US or in other countries.  They kill and injure more people with guns, but they also kill and injure more people with knives, clubs, bare hands and many other means.  Take away their guns, and they'd still be extremely violent.  And the reality is that tighter gun control laws simply don't take away their guns; they only take guns away from the non-violent, law-abiding segment of society.  This is hardly a new observation.  Jefferson translated and quoted the early 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria:"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

His loser son-in-law, "Meathead" (Rob Reiner) was supposed to be the one the audience looked up to ? Nothing but a loser, no job, not paying rent, living under the roof his supposed "idiot" father in law that provides him, in addition to the free meals, TV, phone, and everything else, after fighting Nazis during WWII, all amenities he should be providing, fcuk him, typical liberal POS. The Meathead loser ended up sticking to his loser self and left his wife with a child.

Anyone can post statistics that are skewed in favor favor of their argument.  I can pick any countries at random years to make my argument look good too.  For example Serbia is second in the world for gun ownership and they had 238 gun related homicides in 2010.  You can't post lies on the Internet. Thats a fact. Grow up and do your own research.

MaliaEbel

@Rob You can't compare Serbia with the US. That's like dragging in Mexico or Somalia and comparing them with the US! The proper comparison is developed democracies.

Serbia was very recently a war zone where war crimes were committed. It is still working to recover from that.

@Rob  You are wrong.  The statistic is valid because it refers to DEVELOPED countries.  Nations with capable law enforcement, not nations were the police themselves are part of a criminal organization.

Japan has the highest suicide rate in the world which overshadows its so called gun ownership accomplishment. Every year, for the last 10 years over 30,000 human beings have killed themselves in Japan. Why are genocide rates so high in many countries which practice gun control?  I believe the United Nations is a very dangerous institution which needs scrutiny at every level. How can a nation like Israel be condemned for taking defensive measures? how can any nation question its legitimate and historic existence among nations. The United Nations Small Arms Treaty has roots in totalitarianism. Both my parents survived Hitlers final solution and have experienced so called gun free societies, both were apposed to gun prohibition and the annals of gun safety measures which accomplishes the same. Professor Rudolph J. Rummell provided an eloquent study defining Death by Government and the institutionalization of "Democide".

Ten years ago, I paid no attention to guns. Now I'm in my second five year permit period in Minnesota and have been actively supporting MN Gun Owners Civil Rights Association pushing against the forming gun legislation in MN. I understand a few things. I understand guns are as American as apple pie - more so now since there's too much sugar in those pies, and have played a role in American culture since Lexington and Concord. Guns will go away when we don't need them anymore. It's been stated by many of you here where society needs to focus (social and economic factors, changed government) to attack the root problems.

I understand that the efforts to legislate guns strips and limits the rights of law abiding citizens without dealing with the difficult root causes, criminals and the mentally dangerous . Those pushing for gun restrictions state that any effort to reduce gun ownership, restricting both type of gun and citizens to own them, is worth it if one life is saved. Sen. Ron Latz of MN stated that people can "put up with a little inconvenience" in losing rights. He also countered the objection of stripping due process from taking gun ownership rights away from Minnesotans without adjudication by changing the law to read "who have ever been hospitalized for mental illness or chemical dependency" do have "due process" as they can use the courts after being stripped of them to petition to get back their rights. The original bills submitted in the MN legislature shocked me. I had to ask my representative if all bills start this way, from a fascist mass stripping of individual rights to finally meeting in the middle. I was told, yes. Okay, now I know. Thanks to the voices of organizations and rural Minnesotans, both bills have been pulled with an effort to solidify one aspect to present to our state government, that private parties at gun shows need to use a FFL intermediary.

I appreciate the tenor and tone of this thread. Intelligent discussion on all aspects of guns in society are revealed here, as are the more limited, less aware "sound bites" that many citizens buy into. I've not been this activist since I was a long haired hippee student at the U of M protesting the Vietnam War. Now I'm nearly 60 and I just want winter gone so I can walk a golf course. Oh, and I'll walk it with my personal safety tools in my bag (phone, meds, banana and XD45). Thank you all.

That's right Art. We know that generational poverty, incentivizing dysfunctional families with careless social spending, the drug trade, and politicians buying votes from the masses perpetuates the violence in the inner cities, and we know that pushing those populations out into smaller communities only gives the appearance of having done something to improve crime in the inner city at the expense of pushing the criminal element out into smaller communities which are ill equipped to handle them, and we know that the resulting "crime waves" will be used by fear mongers to insist that we have to take "common sense" measures to combat all of that generational poverty, drug trafficking, social dusfunction, violence, and political manipulation....

...by banning guns.

Yesterday I attended a meeting of Tulsa citizens concerned with the violence, especially gun

violence in our community. For discussion. we had a number of tables with about six persons at each table.

The first question discussed was what do you think the factors are which cause violence.

There were many ideas. Not suprizingly poor parenting; children having children, (one put

this as children being raised by the streets); poor education , lack of morality and civility

in our social actions, interactions; need for better access to and more funding for mental

health; lack of hope, especially in some populations, and other ideas..

But overall there appeared to be a consensus that the easy assess to guns is a major

factor in gun violence. This was not just a group of liberal do gooders as it was comprised

of law enforcement officers,the county district attorney, a public defender, someone from

federal law enforcement, teachers, psychologists, a pediatrician ( whom I think had actually

treated some child victims of gun violence);, etc. On second thought perhaps we were a

bunch of do gooders as we tried to come up with some ideas of what we could do to reduce

violence of any or many kinds in our community ,

Of the reviews I have read here I have not seen a discussion of how many times a gun bought

for protection actually ended up being used to kill someone in the home, Not an intruder but a

a person living in the home or someone known by persons living there.

These deaths may be intentional or accidental. I could cite a number of these in our community

just in the last few years but perhaps I have already written too much.

Ms Thelma-

I read the first part of your comment so full of hope, only to have my hopes dashed. From your description it sounded like the discussion was initially about the causes of violence, which is precisely the problem to be solved. Children raised by the streets, poor education, and hopelessness are all serious problems worth addressing all by themselves, even if you don't accept that they are root causes of violence.

But those things are difficult to discuss, because they involve race. We get uncomfortable, can't imagine a way government could do anything about any of those things, and so we turn to the easy way out, the path of least resistance. "Let's ban guns" we say, or limit magazine size, or whatever.

None of that will help. Kids kill each other with revolvers and baseball bats too. If we reduce violence by giving kids role models and opportunities, ALL violence will decrease, not just gun violence, and we don't have to infringe on the rights of the law abiding to do it.

And unfortunately, it is the "liberal do gooders" who are particularly likely to fall victim to this error in logic. As someone who has worked in medicine, law enforcement, and comes from a family of teachers, I can tell you that there are a lot of liberal do gooders in all of those professions, especially education and medicine.

There's nothing wrong with being a do gooder, or even dare I say a liberal. But I object to saying that we can cure a disease by ignoring the cause and treating one specific symptom. Especially when that treatment involves infringing on the rights of millions of others who have never committed a crime.

Don't take the easy way out. Let's work the problem.

Eric

@Scot Douglas Protecting freedom is never easy and is a daily chore. do you think by banning guns and its owners is the way to go? think before you make such statements. Perhaps Jewish Partisans "Took and easy way out" and as such perhaps accepting the initiative every despot prescribes is another easy way out. intelligent discourse based upon fact and history is our only recourse, otherwise history has a way of repeating itself. there is no easy way out my friend.  

Scot Douglas

Ms. Riggs,

I'm curious as to why you are especially concerned with 'gun violence' as if somehow a murder, assault, or other crime is somehow worse if the criminal involved uses a gun rather than some other tool?

I doubt if your group could point to any instances, anywhere, in which implementing restrictions on legal firearms ownership ever resulted in lower overall rates of relevant crimes. In over 99% of the cases such laws don't even reduce the firearms related rate of relevant crimes.

As to your question about how many times a gun bought for protection has been used to kill someone in the home, the answer is the number is statistically tiny unless you include suicide, and all studies that I'm aware of show that suicide rates are means independent, someone intent on killing themselves will do so whether they have access to firearms or not.

Skewed, inaccurate and totally oblivious to the constitution. I stopped reading after the United Kingdom part. Do I need to remind the writer that the EU considers the UK the most violent country within the EU? I agree with Mr. Schlesinger that there is no reliable causation between legal firearms and violence.

This is the most biased article that I've ever read. This article doesn't account for mental illness, illegal possession of guns, deaths via self-defense, the decline of morality in the U.S., the decline of personal responsibility in the U.S., high death rates in gun free zones and cities that have strict gun control yet much gun violence etc.; this article has no substance or anything that can really back up and correlate gun ownership (or legal gun ownership for that matter) to gun related crime. Instead, this article compares the U.S. (the greatest country in the world because of its freedoms listed in the Constitution) to shitty European countries. People fled/immigrated to the U.S. for freedom. This article spits on these freedoms and the European immigrants who came here for those freedoms. My point is the following: I'd rather be armed up to my teeth in the U.S. than live in failing, socialist Europe.

It never ceases to amaze how true the expression "figures don't lie, but liars figure". Since our colleges have been infested with liars I am not surprised that a recent college grad would take a Benjamin Franklin quote completely out of context. His words “Anyone who will trade freedom for security deserves neither” clearly and without question were telling people of the colonies to get a backbone and take arms against the British even though doing so would put their lives at risk.

First some facts: 3 out of 4 people arrested for illegal gun possession in Australia do not get jail as part of their sentence, in other words, its just a ticket and a fine. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/law-and-order/5383565/Three-in-four-people-caught-with-guns-avoid-jail.html

I assume that what is being proposed here is similar. Now remember folks, laws do not prevent crime, the sentence severity is supposed to provide a deterrent to keep people from committing a crime.

The shooters commit MURDER. It is not an accident. They prepare detailed plans. its not like "gosh, I'm sorry officer, I usually obey the law. They know what they are doing, they know that they will break several laws. Yet still, the possibility of life in prison or the electric chair/gas chamber does nothing to stop their actions.

Please tell me what affect a new law will have on these kind of people? What are we going to do? I keep seeing the scene like it was another cop TV sitcom/reality show... show opens, gritty cop walks into a school, dead kids everywhere, one dead kid with a bunch of guns and one gun barrel stuck in his mouth and the back of his head blown off, Cop says something witty "Man, I should have had a V8" (camera pans to several others who are drinking V8 - you do high fives, and cash your check from whatever corporate conglomerate sells V8), Cop walks over to the dead kid with all the guns and stands there silent shaking his head..., then he whips out his citation pad, writes the corpse a citation for possession of an illegal firearm and duct tapes it to his forehead.

Yeah, that'll work. I believe we NEED to do something to stop this, but come on kids... grow up.

why is it so hard for men to give up their toys..err..their guns? Only men seem to defend and rationalize the continuous lack of gun control in this country.. Isnt the stats comparing countries not enough evidence? Of course, these men will find ways to rationalize- that what is effective in other countries is not effective here- why? are we such a special country so different from the world?!

Secondly, as Americans possess guns for self-defense apparently- the result is the other way around- more criminals get to have weapons to do crimes. Is that defense? I lived in Japan where people are mostly not afraid, a gun-free nation where people even leave their doors unlocked. Compare that here. now tell me if having guns made us safer and more secured? Yes, of course, we are Americans therefore the rule of the thumb doesnt apply to us.. whatever

Scot Douglas

I'm constantly amazed at how people like you are so unaware. In this comment section, and elsewhere, you find many women who support firearms rights.

Second, none of the laws in other countries actually worked to reduce the levels of violent crime, in fact, in most cases (England a prime example) as their legal restrictions on firearms ownership have gotten tighter, their violent crime rates (including firearmes related crime rates) have gone up.

In Japan the police can come into your home whenever they want to. The suicide rate in Japan is through the roof, and, for cultural and historical reasons, they prefer edged weapons to guns. However, criminals in Japan are still able to get guns when they want them.

I thought I would forward this email that sums up 170 million good reasons why stricter gun control is NOT a good idea.

Dr. Ignatius Piazza

Sunday, January 6, 2013

Dear Jeffrey,

After every mass shooting, we hear the unenlightened politicians and knee-jerk liberals wailing, "If we can save just ONE life by getting guns off the street, then it is worth passing stricter gun control..."

Well, the next time you hear that from anybody, I want you to respond with: "Over 170 million people would disagree with you... if they could. You can't talk with them, because they are dead! They were killed by their own governments after strict gun control disarmed them."

Then I want you to hand them a copy of Innocents Betrayed, an award-winning documentary DVD that I co-produced with Aaron Zelman and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO).

You have probably seen the e-mails that float around the Internet that look like this:

WORLDWIDE HISTORY OF GUN CONFISCATION

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated...

------------------------

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

------------------------

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

------------------------

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

------------------------

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

------------------------

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

------------------------

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Well, I co-produced Innocents Betrayed because it dramatically and irrefutably documents the direct connections between government gun control schemes and the subsequent genocides that have taken the lives of over 170 million people!

This is a must-see DVD because it contains documented, proven facts of history that even the most ardent gun control advocate cannot deny.

Watch a short trailer of this riveting and educational film. Then order your own copies to share with your family, friends and co-workers. All proceeds go directly to JPFO and assist in their efforts to educate Americans and expose the fallacy of gun control.

I personally put my money where my mouth is to co-produce the DVD because the message is so important to the future of our country and our offspring. The dangers of gun control are real. Innocents Betrayed exposes them in such an undeniable manner in this DVD that you simply must have it in any well-stocked information arsenal for sharing with anyone who thinks otherwise.

Sincerely,

@Jeff Bostic Good thing you do not live in any of those coutries, here the 'right' to wn a gun is guareteed by our Constitution, HOWEVER - as we restrict the right to drive cars, lanes, heavy equipment (all designed NOT TO KILL) it nly makes sense to restrict access to guns WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO KILL) to licensed individuals. If people fear the government then MOVE, otherwise we need to have a national standard/license - which can be revoked for violent convictions, psych problems  . .  . These killings HAVE ESCALLATED - your data is dated
