Eh. I'd be more concerned about Hollywood and other degrading programs that are mainstream. A bunch of hypocrites

Programs like MTV which airs + promotes shows like 16 and pregnant, basketball wives, jersey shore, kardashians, etc. These shows are very popular with teens.

There lives 8.2 million people in New York compared to 8.1 million people in London. In 2012, 414 homicides were reported which is an all-time low since they started to count the amount.

Now compare that to London, the last report I could find about London was from 2011 and the total amount there were only 117 homicides reported.

Talk about crime rate all you want but I rather get mugged, stabbed and beaten compared to getting shot....

Alot of the crimes/gun crimes in the US are committed in low income or "ghetto" areas. Areas like Detroit, New Orleans and Baltimore have extremely high crime rates while your average place is pretty much safe.

If gun control can stop criminals, thugs, gangstas, etc, from getting guns cool but it won't... It will create a disaster like the war on drugs or prohibition.

I also love how our politicians are pushing so hard for this agenda to use to distract the public from real issues.. How about getting the wall street thugs or the banksters? But of course that will never happen!

I just proved that the amount of murdered in New York are twice more than twice as many compared to London.

I'm not a fan of Islam, I'm no fan of no religion but I'm no idiot and I don't label everyone as extremists due the actions of a small group of people.

There are around 2.7 million muslims in the UK, don't be an idiot and call them out because of nonsense from a small group of people.

In Sweden during the 90's we had problems with racists and nazis, they're gone from the streets now. Extreme people don't always hang around for good.

Don't try the propaganda nonsense with me, I'll destroy you. We have plenty of muslims in Sweden as well and no, I don't judge every muslim based on the actions of a small minority.

So it's okay that the UK has nearly double the violent crime rate (rapes, assaults, etc.) as the US because fewer people die in London than in NYC?



What the fck kind of logic is that.

Yes, shooting at gun ranges, to get better at killing things.

Target shooting is an Olympic sport moron.

Which of your hobbies is also an Olympic sport? Certainly not whacking off in your mom's basement and playing video games.

Again, don't try to respond with bogus lies and made up stuff.

The last stats I could find regarding rape in the UK and the US shows that they are almost equal.

Rape rate per 100 000 people:

UK: 27.9
USA: 27.7

And you are more than welcome to prove that UK has nearly a doubled violent crime rate compared to the UK.

Some food for thought

When discussing violent crime in the UK vs USA it's important to note that the UK reports far more categories as being a violent crime such as theft from a parked car in the UK is considered a violent crime in the US it's not even a felony crime if the item stolen is of little value

Quote:
the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports defines a “violent crime” as one of four specific offenses: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault.

Quote:
The British Home Office, by contrast, has a substantially different definition of violent crime. The British definition includes all “crimes against the person,” including simple assaults, all robberies, and all “sexual offenses,” as opposed to the FBI, which only counts aggravated assaults and “forcible rapes.”

Quote:
When you look at how this changes the meaning of “violent crime,” it becomes clear how misleading it is to compare rates of violent crime in the US and the UK. You’re simply comparing two different sets of crimes.
