Response to intaglio (Reply #10)

11. I made the graph.

Me. Personally. With information that I gathered from the UK Home Office and the US Bureau of Justice Statistics.

The UK homicide rate went up 20 or 30% after the bans. 1.03 per 100k/yr in 1989, to 1.25 in 1998 to 1.40 in 2000.

Not only that, the ratio of US to UK homicides dropped from nearly 12:1 in 1973 to about 4:1 in 2000.

That's the green line, by the way.


And I don't compare non-homicide rates across countries; the different definitions and tabulations methods are beyond my pay grade to normalize.


Sorry to break out of the box you tried to put me in.
