UNITED STATES COMPARED TO REST OF THE WORLD
…. these are facts. There’s no denying them. It happens over and over and over again ….
Umpqua Community College shooting
In light of the Oregon shooting, October 1, 2015, that left 10 people dead, we have updated this story from 2014. It remains our most popular piece.
Whenever a mass shooting occurs, a debate about gun violence ensues. An often-cited counter to the point about the United States’ high rates of gun homicides is that people in other countries kill one another at the same rate using different types of weapons. It’s not true.
Compared to other countries, the United States has exceptional homicide rates, and it’s driven by gun violence.
The U.S. has higher rates of homicides from guns than Pakistan. At 4.5 deaths per 100,000 people, the U.S. rates aren’t much lower than gun homicide rates in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (5.2 deaths per 100,000 people).
Annually, the U.S. has about two fewer gun homicide deaths per 100,000 people than Iraq, which has 6.5 deaths per 100,000.
