GUEST,number 6 BS: Guns & laws in the US (329* d) RE: BS: Guns & laws in the US 19 Apr 12

The U.S. is a very large country ... larger than Europe .... may regions in the U.S. have a murder rate equal to GB on the other hand many parts of Europe (which have strict gun controls) have a murder rate equal to many regions in the U.S. ... so to say the whole of the U.S. is murder central in the global sphere is rather biased ... that perception is based on the the cowboy gunslinger image that is presented in the mainstream media, movies, T.V. programs etc. .... yes, the U.S. has many problems these days and we all like to point our fingers at that them, but they as a country are not more violently inclined as a people than many other parts of the world.

Having walked through the city of Boston many times I know there are sections of the city that I feel safe waking through and then there are sections that I feel more vulnerable and know I should be careful .... not unlike walking through the cities of Glasgow, Madrid and Munich.
