Group Rates US Only 83rd Most Peaceful Nation

But you must see why. The group considers gun sales negative, which would make just about any country led by a dictator peaceful.  The Second Amendment is a problem.  Also negative:  Size of military.  That makes weak countries somehow more peaceful.  Cuba, China and Libya are among the countries rated above the United States.  Oh, and Jimmy Carter is one of those who endorses the group.
