Perspective from the U.K:
Joshua Bond

Forget guns, compare the number of knife deaths, or the number of unarmed killings: They are both dramatically lower in the UK than in the US. No one is suggesting that’s because the British have fewer knives — or fewer hands and feet — than Americans. There are literally hundreds of differences between the US and the UK that might bear on the issue of gun deaths. So why the implication that the single crucial essential controlling variable is firearm availability? Because it serves a gun confiscation agenda. If you want a good cross-cultural discussion of gun policy see Kopple’s 1992 work, “The Samurai, the Mountie and the Cowboy.”
