Well of course a single town is going to have lower murders than an entire country of 60+ million. So it's an unfair comparrison

But lets look at two cities London and New York both have populations of around 8m

In April 2011 - March 2012

There were 101 homicides in London

NYC had 515 murders in 2011.

Both are for roughly 365 days
Even when London had looser gun laws than NYC, it had a much lower homicide rate. New York's gun restrictions far predate London's.
Then I have a question for you, have the tighter gun laws in NYC had an impact an the number of homicides commited by a firearm since they came into force?
I do believe they went up...
