Default Re: US gun related murder rates compared to other countries

Caracas, Venezuela's 92 per 100,000 homicide rate trumps the US's rate of 3.2 per 100,000.

but then again, caracas is the murder capital of the world.

The US homicide rates are alarming, but the media does augment the situation a lot. not everyone is getting killed at schools or malls everyday. the odds are still in your favor when you go to a mall or movie theather to not randomly be killed. this is not to downplay the tragedies, but in places like caracas, pretty much 1 out of 1,000 is statistically destined to be murdered in the city.

that's fkin insane.
