All that needs to be said about guns in America — More guns mean more deaths by guns!

9 times as many homicides by gun in U.S. compared to Netherlands. 21 times as many as Australia! According to a 2007 survey, the US led the world in the number of civilian-owned firearms with 88.8 guns per 100 people, while second-place Yemen fell far behind at 54.8 guns per 100 people. And the research, compiled by the Harvard School of Public Health’s Injury Control Research Center, has repeatedly found a link between a higher number of guns and higher levels of gun violence.
