Each year, more than 30,000 people die from bullets in America. In France, that number is 1,950; in Germany, it’s 900. In Greece, it’s only around 165. Those are numbers from a study cited on ABC News a few months ago, showing that America’s death-by-firearms rate is 10 times that of Germany, 9 times that of Sweden and 14 times that of Turkey.
