The UK holds that distinction, and it is pretty clear why the hold it... gun control:

Death rate by firearms per 100,000 people:

UK: 0.25
US: 10.30.

Yes, that's correct. The number is forty times higher in the United States.

Great argument.

Oh, incidentally?

Spain: 0.62
France: 3.01
Greece: 1.64
Hungary: 0.87
Germany: 1.24
Belgium: 2.42
Czech Republic: 1.76
Germany: 1.24
Italy: 1.28
Luxemborg: 2.02
Netherlands: 0.46
Portugal: 1.77
Sweden: 1.47
Switzerland: 3.84

Apparently none of these countries are in Europe?

So, nice post. You ask "How could this be?" Answer: it isn't.
