If this sounds pedantic and petty I'm sorry, but not only do I not give much if any weight to gturner
's half baked statistics, but the following are NOT
Martinique, Greenland, French Guiana, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Montserrat, Guadeloupe, the Cayman Islands, Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands.
All of these are overseas colonial or constitutionally incorporated territories of either the United States or a European nation. They are not
independent countries. This might just be the observations of an obsessive-compulsive geography nerd and nitpicker who's grown increasingly weary of gturner
's repeated attempts to downplay and minimize American gun violence and murder rate, but a country or nation is a sovereign political unit and not a dependent territory of a stronger overseas power that controls most or all of its affairs.
You can call Montserrat many things that are wonderful and descriptive, but "country" isn't one of them.
What else you got?
