http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_firearm-re...Interesting chart that can be sorted on the columns. Seems the countries with the highest rate of firearm related deaths are mostly Central and South American. Here are the top ten per 100,000 people:Country RateEl Salvador 50.36Jamaica 47.44Honduras 46.70Guatemala 38.52Swaziland 37.16Colombia 28.11Brazil 19.01Panama 12.92Mexico 11.14Philippines 9.46The US is 12th BTW. Other than Swaziland and the Philippines, all of those countries have a high rate of firearm death due to drug related activities. See http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Americas/Latin-America-Monito... for more info on that.I ran across this while doing research trying to better understand the gun violence problem in the US and determine what I think is the best action to support. I thought it might be interesting to those of you trying to come to grips with that same problem.Calabogie
