    As we all know, many guns are violent. I wanted to know where the most violent ones lived, so I downloaded the guardians spreadsheet

    http://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2012/jul/22/gun-homicides-ownership-world-list

    I added a column which would compute the number of "gun murders" per "100,000 civilian guns". This would tell me which countries had the most aggressive guns. The spreadsheet has many "blanks" when it comes to the actual number of gun murders, so those are excluded. The others are interesting indeed.

    Country | Gun Murders per 100,000 civilian guns
    ============= ============================
    Bahamas 305
    Brazil 233
    Philippines 188
    South Africa 139
    Mexico 72
    Argentinia 30
    Netherlands 10
    Italy 5.9
    Turkey 5.9
    Ireland 5.5
    Portugal 4.8
    Luxembourg 4.29
    Belgium 3.89
    US 3.39

    It seems that our guns are fairly non violent ;-)

    Violent U.S. guns reside mainly in the fantasies of statist loving progressive-liberals who have no clue beyond the end of their own noses.

    The US slips even further down the list when you take out the sub-category of 'gun' and simply search 'acts of violence'.

    We in the US are not a violent society much as the anti-rights folks would like everyone to believe so to bolster their efforts to separate us from freedom and usher us into slavery and it's many forms and varying degrees.
