Bull, any website will show you exactly the opposite, Britain has FAR lower murder rate than the US per capita.first of all, violent crimes such as murder are actually several orders of magnitude higher in Britain, a country in which almost all guns are illegal, than in the US
Again, bull. Show me where you found those numbers.You also have to look at the fact that guns are used in defensive purposes anywhere from 800,000 - 2,500,000 times a year to prevent crimes such as rape and murder.
I've already stated that american culture is the true blame, but what I also said was that we can't cure our violent nature as long as guns remain apart of our identity.EDIT: also, you are forgetting that murder is a per capita thing. You forgot to mention that the US has a population of 5 times that of Britain IIRC(Britain does have 60 mil?) and that we have alot more poorer people that there are in Europe.
Guns are not the problem, the heterogeniety of the US in respects to Race/Religion/Ethnicity is. Look at Switzerland and Finland, over there they are REQUIRED to own a weapon(in both countries, fully automatic weapons are legal), and they have some of the lowest crime rates of any industrialized nation. Is this because they have guns, no. This is because the ethnic mixture in most European countries is almost 100% of one ethnicity.
Already been argued a few times above your post.Knives kill far more people in Britain that guns, so should they be required to ban knives, since criminals moved to them when they banned firearms?
Again, show me the studies that says murder rates have increased. And I'm sorry, but I'll take higher crime rates for a bit to drop the gun murder rate.hmm.. propose me a way to phase out guns that does not lead to more crime(happened in every country that has banned them), including more murder and rapes, and I will be behind you 100%
