“In 1985 hand guns killed eight people in Great Britain, 48 people in Japan, 34 in Switzerland, 52 in Canada, 58 in Israel, 21 in Sweden, 42 in West Germany, and 10,728 in the United States. There are more murders each year on Manhatten Island which is 3 miles by 12 miles than in the United Kingdom including Ireland.” (Victor Cline, American Fork High School, 1990)
