The United Kingdom has one of the lowest rates of gun homicides in the world with 0.07 recorded intentional homicides committed with a firearm per 100,000 inhabitants in 2009 compared to the United States' 3.0 (over 40 times higher) and to Germany's 0.21 (3 times higher).
OK, but what is the MURDER rate, manta?

I guess it's now considered a worse thing, in some places, to kill your attacker with a gun (that would be recorded as an "intentional homicide committed with a firearm", would it not?) than to be beaten to death by that attacker (that would be a "murder").

I'll keep my gun, thankee. You keep your moral superiority, such as it is.....
