    Posted: 15 Jul 2018 at 12:56pm
Was just listening to a report on Mexico and the warnings of no travel advised in 5 areas of the country - most are the tourist destinations there . 

It seems there were 25,000 murders in Mexico last year - this in a country with strict gun control and only 1 store (government run) that sells firearms of any kind . A special permit is needed to buy a firearm and must be approved by the National government .
Meanwhile, the population of Mexico is ~123 million people (324 million people live in United States)
Now figure the below is the total for the US
There were a total of 17,250 reported murder and non-negligent manslaughter cases in the U.S. in 2016. Although the number of cases has declined in the past twenty years, when viewed in international comparison, the U.S. murder rate is still high. In 2012, Germany’s murder rate stood at 0.8, compared to 4.7 in the United States.

The most dangerous U.S. state in 2016, if measured by the number of murders per hundred thousand inhabitants, was Louisiana. The murder and non-negligent manslaughter rate in Louisiana came to 11.8 that year, more than twice the national average. The least dangerous state in 2016, on the other hand, was New Hampshire, with a murder rate of 1.3.

Murder, homicide and violent crime statistics regularly influence America’s current political debate on gun law. Under the Second Amendment, U.S. citizens are entitled to own and carry firearms, though gun control and regulation laws are hotly contested. The amount of firearms in circulation in the U.S. is fairly high, when compared with European countries. About 39 percent of American households have a gun in their home.

Though any causal connection between firearm circulation and homicide rate is purely speculative, murder by firearm is nonetheless high. About 73 percent of murders and non-negligent manslaughter cases in the U.S. were carried out using a firearm, including handguns, rifles, and shotguns. This number sums up to 11,004murders by firearm.

The ranking of the most dangerous cities in the world based on murder rate per capita can be accessed here.
