    there are extenuating circumstances for the fact that every modern industrialized democracy has vastly fewer per capita gun related deaths each year.

          Still no discussion about the things that make the US issue with guns and violent crime different from other countries.

          Things like a large number of violent gangs, sharing a porous border with an unstable country battling cartels, the effects of the 1980's crack epidemic as it relates to the growth of violent gang and drug related crime, the different circumstances regarding existing weapons in a country that decides to implement strict gun control, the social and legal changes in the US between 1940 and 2012 as they relate to gun crime, or really anything at all other than: industrialized nations! Murder rate! and contentless repetition.

          Weird.

          I wonder why that is?
