So 58 (for years 2010-11) divided by two is 29 average gun-related deaths in Engalnd/Wales per year. The US has close six times the population (near 300 million?), so ..
So, 6 multipled by 29 = 174. Why can't the US work to achieve under 200 deaths per year? Instead of the typical 8,000 - 10,000. Seems like gun control legislation is working very well in England. Why the huge difference? That's why lawmakers need to look at now.
