  •  But don't both... (0+ / 0-)

    ...homicide rates include non-gun homicides?

    If 3/4 of the homicides in the United States result from a firearm injury (not an unreasonable approximation for 2011) and all guns were removed from all hands and no one who would have murdered by a gun was then murdered by another method (such as a knife), our homicide rate would be about the same as Israel's.

    One has to look at the number homicides in Israel and the United States that utilized firearms to reach the conclusion you did.

    •  Nope. These were shooting deaths only. (1+ / 0-)

      But your confusion is completely understandable as I didn't make that clear in my post.

      Good catch.
