Like I've always said, let's look at where and "who" these statistics derive from.
OOPS!!! Did I say "who"?
Realistically, crime rates should not be reflected on as a whole (us) comparative to other countries, but more-so as to where and who (crap, said it again).
This guy treads the issue lightly by pointing to populace, then leaves it to the viewers intellectual ability to put 2+2 together.
Break this down into neighborhoods and race and bingo!
Now look at the majority (geographically) of legal gun ownership, and crime statistics!
