25. 4 to 1? in england

krispos; 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.

Rather it's lying by statistics, since the US murder rate peaked about 1993, from lower rates in 1973 & 2000.
You must also consider britons, that from mid 1960s to early 1970s, the american national gunstock increased from 75 millions to 150 millions, doubled, & the gun murder rate doubled at the same time (less than ten years). Do you seriously think there is no correlation?
(then it doubled again to 300 millions by now, 2013 - but it is surmised that better treatment of gunshot wounds since then, have increased the odds of survival of gunshots)

Cherry picking years, krispos, does not equate to rational argument. Dunno why you're so impressed with a 4 to 1 murder ratio anyway.
