The party of the packing

Compare the rate of murder by gun in the United States to the rate in any other advanced industrial nation, and you're forced to draw one of two conclusions: Either there are far more homicidal people in this country than just about anyplace else on Earth, or far more guns. We must either be home to more people who succumb to murderous rage or who kill out of the coldest of calculations, or it's easier to pick up a gun and start shooting here than in any comparable country.
