Bogus fire arm graph. Israel has a population with many guns, probably more than the USA but they have few gun deaths. They were not listed on the graph. Other countries missing that have strict gun control but extremely high gun deaths are Columbia, Venezuela, and Mexico.

What point are you trying to make? The graph was about homicides by firearm per million of population. What's that got to do with Israel (High gun ownership, low gun deaths) or Columbia, Venezuela & Mexico (high gun deaths plus gun control - according to you)?

This is like saying it's a bogus fire arm graph bevause it doesn't show death by grapefruit... Well it wouldn't show death by grapefruit because that's not what the graph is about.

People with such poor reasoning skills shouldn't be allowed to own guns, don't you think, Cengland0?
