Per person, gun violence in the UK is far worse than in the US and firearms are illegal there.

Don't believe any statistics contrived by people with a blind rage against something.

I am familiar with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) report from which that number is derived. They do count firearms deaths from all causes including suicide in that number, but if you read in the fine print they also count EVERYTHING in (section Y35) the following classification regarding law enforcement intervention regardless of what instrument actually caused death:
"
Y35
Legal intervention

Includes: injuries inflicted by the police or other law-enforcing agents, including military on duty, in the course of arresting or attempting to arrest lawbreakers, suppressing disturbances, maintaining order, and other legal action
Y35.0
Legal intervention involving firearm discharge

Legal intervention with:
machine gun
revolver
rifle pellet or rubber bullet
Y35.1
Legal intervention involving explosives

Legal intervention with:
dynamite
explosive shell
grenade
mortar bomb
Y35.2
Legal intervention involving gas

Asphyxiation by gas
Injury by tear gas
Poisoning by gas
}
}
}
due to legal intervention
Y35.3
Legal intervention involving blunt objects

Hit, struck by:


baton
blunt object
stave
}
}
}
during legal intervention
Y35.4
Legal intervention involving sharp objects

Cut
Injured by bayonet
Stabbed
}
}
}
during legal intervention
Y35.5
Legal execution

Any execution performed at the behest of the judiciary or ruling authority [whether permanent or temporary], such as:
asphyxiation by gas
beheading, decapitation (by guillotine)
capital punishment

That wasn't the issue, I was more concerned about spending the time getting people to turn down the volume in their cars as they're driving around in the middle of the day :P

Every day "insert large number" people smoke crack in their trailertrash home, while their kids starve or sell dope.

Better? :P

Only better if they actually die of starvation.

I think we should introduce cyanide into the cocaine and heroin supply covertly as a solution to the drug problem. Either people would stop using it or they would stop using it.
