Are we reading the same article? The graph shows the trend from 1970 to 2010. Nearly every paragraph talks about years more recent than 1988.
And yet Britain has a higher population density than any state in the US and our homicide rate is about a quarter of yours.

I'm just going off the footnotes in the article, two out of the three refs given stop in 1998.

Sure, I know, but I don't think that's a gun thing. I think it's a culture of violence thing. I think Vermont is more similar to other US states than any foreign country can ever be, as are Arizona, Alaska, and Utah, each of which gets a 0 from the Brady Bunch.

Those are specific to certain bits. The text is more up to date and primarily drawn from most recent CDC reporting, 2010 vintage.

No culture of violence in Britain? Seriously?

The United States of America isn't just a tiny island.

It's an actual country.

Tangent: My friend from London says when he goes home to visit his mates ask him if he feels unsafe in the States. He says he feels much less safe in the UK because apparently you lot beat each other up a lot. He was also robbed at gunpoint coming out of a concert in London once.

In any case, I've still yet to see any practical proposal for getting rid of the guns that are already here. And don't bother with your idea of government assassination squads.

It looks like the veep is leaning toward universal background checks and limited magazine sizes. Good on one and who gives a shit on two.

We have our share of nutters. Britain's history is one long orgy of violence, among ourselves and against others.

There is no reason not to speak ill of the dead.

If that's what they are.

And the reason that Livia Soprano didn't want any remembrance, or wake, or funeral ceremony... is because she knew what people were going to say about her.

But, thanks to her daughter Janice, it happened, anyway.
