^ If you read the Harvard Law Review paper cited by the United States Supreme Court, you'll see the nine point one per one-hundred thousand homicide rate for Luxembourg, which has since dropped.
What was the year which the data cited in the review came from? I see 1997 for the firearms ownership rates (mine dates from 2007, the most recent year of the survey) and homicide rates from 2000 (mine dates from 2011). In neither case would Luxembourg have a homicide rate twice that of the United States, though.
