Top 10 safest countries.

10. Taiwan: is a very stable country where the citizens feel very safe. It is completely safe to walk around or even catch public transport at night. Violent crime and theft levels are amazingly low. Gun Laws: CIVILIANS CAN NOT OWN GUNS. (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 128 in 2008)

9. Slovenia: Four out of every five citizen feel safe walking alone in the night. The country has remained completely free of terrorist incidents. Slovenia also does not have any major problems in terms of occupancy of land or border disputes. GUN LAWS: CIVILAINS CAN NOT OWN SEMI-AUTOMATIC GUNS. HAND GUNS ONLY BY SPECIAL PERMISSION.  (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 44 in 2009)

8. Sweden: has a much lower crime rate than most other European countries. 7 out of 10 individuals feel safe walking alone in the night. GUN LAWS: RESTRICTIVE. MUST PROVE NEED FOR GUN OWNERSHIP. (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 138 in 2008)

7. New Zealand: according to the 2010 Global Peace Index, is the safest place to live in the world. New Zealand's local police force is strong and you can be assured that all criminal matters are taken seriously. It is a secure nation and that prides itself on maintaining safe communities. GUN LAWS: ONLY FOR HUNTING. (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 11 in 2009)

6. Denmark: faces very little national security challenges. 1.1% of the population has reported being assaulted and 9% of the population has been victims of theft; these are 6th and 25th lowest figures in the world. Crimes rates are incredibly low in the country's major cities. For example, there are no "bad neighborhoods" in even a busy like Copenhagen. GUN LAWS: MUST PROVE LIGITAMITE REASON FOR GUN OWNERSHIP, EXCLUDES SELF DEFENSE (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 15 in 2009)

5. Singapore: has no national security threat and crime is almost non-existent. This is in no small part due to the strong hand of the justice system. Even for spitting on the street can get you a strong sentence. 8 out 10 people feel safe walking alone at night in the country. GUN LAWS: MUST PROVE LIGITAMITE REASON FOR GUN OWNERSHIP, EXCLUDES SELF DEFENSE (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 1 in 2006)

4. Ireland: previous terrorism problems are now nearly non-existent. Ireland has a low rate of violent crime and the people are very friendly and welcoming to foreigners. GUN LAWS: MUST PROVE LIGITAMITE REASON FOR GUN OWNERSHIP, EXCLUDES SELF DEFENSE (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 24 in 2009)

3. Finland: has very few national security threats. Violent crime is very rare. People of Finland feel they are safe and they enjoy the liberty to express their opinions on political issues without any fear. GUN LAWS: MUST PROVE LIGITAMITE REASON FOR GUN OWNERSHIP, EXCLUDES SELF DEFENSE (HOMICIDIES BY GUN: 22 in 2009)

2. Norway: has real no "bad areas" even in the major cities. Ironically, the absolute utter disbelief following the unique 2011 terrorist attacks in the country demonstrations how safe the Norway truly is. 85% of the population feels safe walking alone in the night. GUN LAWS: MUST PROVE LIGITAMITE REASON FOR GUN OWNERSHIP, EXCLUDES SELF DEFENSE (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 9 in 2009)

1. Iceland: there is almost no chance of getting robbed or harassed. There are no safety issues regarding homeless people or drugs. If you desire safety, Reykjavik is the world's perfect destination. GUN LAWS: MUST PROVE LIGITAMITE REASON FOR GUN OWNERSHIP, EXCLUDES SELF DEFENSE (HOMICIDES BY GUN: 24 in 2009)

Compare these number with the USA:

GUN LAWS:

Minimum Age for Firearm Possession

The minimum age for gun ownership in the United States is regulated by state or local authorities according to weapon type, but is 18 years to purchase shotguns and rifles and 21 years to purchase all other firearms, according to Federal law43

HOMICIDES BY GUN: 9,146 in 2009

Unfortunetly we are nothing like those countries. We have had the rights to bear arms for too long, taking it away would create a huge problem. Besides if someone wants to get their hands on a gun no law in the world could stop them.

we should take all the cars away too. Drunk drivers kill the same amount if not more every year. If we take cars away from people than that will end drunk driving.

 Stats and numbers don't matter to gun lovers though. They're SURE that if take their precious guns away hoards of criminals (and the Government of course) will go on a rampage and they'll be all defenseless. If Americans are all that like we think we are, then we should be able to fight and be the best without all the damn guns.
