    Hey Brits – Maybe we compromise and go halfsies on this – drop the fucker off in the middle of the Atlantic on a raft?

    Murder rate vs guns. Each dot represents a country.

    This was put together from data from Wikipedia

    Data for murder rates from here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate

    Data for guns per person from here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_of_guns_per_capita_by_country

    Combined together here – https://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?docid=1ldyDdmt15tTAj8UKYwFBin0wTnNuO2ZJLBHsiBQ%EF%BB%BF
