You know, Russia has about 5 times the US murder rate, but is much more heavily restricted. More restricted than the UK.

And even if you factored out all firearms related murders in the US, we still have a much higher homicide rate than the UK. Think about that- in a nation with 270 million guns, where guns are easily accessible, there are about 2500 cases a year in which someone just didn't have one lying around handy, or was in too much of a hurry to go buy one, and decided to kill someone with whatever else was lying around.
