The EU consists of 27 "states" with a total population of 503.5 million approximately 38% more than the US with over 311.5 million or a difference of 192 million, a difference that is 5.5 times the TOTAL POPULATION of Canada, just the DIFFERENCE in population.
With a population difference of over 192 million people, the EU has approximately 60% FEWER intentional deaths by handgun each year.
In real numbers, the total intentional deaths in the EU by handgun for 2012 were 5,849 (again as a total of 27 countries/states)
In real numbers, the total intentional deaths in the US by handgun
for 2012 were 14,748.
How can anyone POSSIBLY compare the two and see ANY comparison whatsoever in these figures?
192 million more people, in the WHOLE EU, and yet 8,629 fewer intentional homicides by handgun than in the USA?
There is a MASSIVE difference in gun laws too.
