Yep, I posted a comparison between Switzerland gun violence vs. the US here:

You weren't making a realistic comparison

http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/homicid...acetab.cfm
The WPMR (white people murder rate) is below 3.5 per 100,000. The black murder rate was 26.3 per 100,000 in 2005. Black people (12% of the population) kill 35% more people - total, not per capita - with guns than White People.

Since 68% of homicides are by gun, the GHRWP (gun homicide rate for White People) is 2.38 per 100,000.

You neglected the Switzerland suicide rate by gun of 3.15 per 100,000. Which is pretty high.

If someone wants to off themselves, I really don't care how they decide to do it; it's their life, their choice.

I do, however, get pissed as hell when they try to take others with them ala Columbine, Sandy Hook, etc.

Yes I agree, I think suicide by gun in Switzerland is high because of accessibility. I should of course at this point find out the overall suicide rate world wide but it's Saturday night and it's too depressing to google.

Of all the Americas (and that includes sandbars in the Caribbean), only Canada, Chile, Argentina, and Martinique have lower murder rates.

The US homicide rate in 2012 is less than 1/2 of the 1991 homicide rate.

The record for Elementary School deaths is 38. The record was set by Andrew Philip Kehoe in 1927 at the Bath School and the weapon of choice was dynamite.

Gary Ridgway (arrested 2001) was convicted of killing 48, confessed to killing 71, and is suspected of killing over 90 women (and the number increases as new bodies are found). Weapons: his arm, rope, fishing line.

It isn't a gun problem. White guys with too much free time are a little dangerous.
