  •  The Politifact reference... (7+ / 0-)

    looks at Switzerland's "gun homicide" rate, compared to 24 countries, mostly in western Europe, and finds it 4th-highest of those 24 countries.  

    That's considerably different from saying that Switzerland's "gun violence" rate is 4th highest "in the world."

    The diary has some useful info and references, but it's important to state the facts carefully and correctly.

    •  worldwide, it's 14th, according to wikipedia (1+ / 0-)

      just a quick check  However, among the industrialized countries that are most similar, only the US is higher.

      Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.
