Stats, please. The story I saw last week explained why Canada is NOT better. Fewer people killed by guns than in the US, just like in Great Britain. However the murder rates were very comparable, when looking at similar population groups. Just more beating deaths and death by strangulation in Canada. So try again "eco."

Via The Blaze: Ben Swann, a local Fox anchor for WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, offered up a fascinating fact-check of some of the stats that the British CNN host has been using.


“In the UK, there are 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 people...the U.S. has a violent crime rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents."
