Your higher risk rate if you move to America?

Hi all,

based on the “God Bless America” poster in a previous post, and based on Wikipedia national population guides, I came up with these figures.

I calculated the deaths / percentage of population, and then (because I don’t like percentages) I presented it in Deaths per million (D / M).

To cut to the chase, the most interesting number is your RISK rate if you move from any of the countries below to America. This is the number of times more likely you are to be shot if you move from one of the countries below to America. That is, if you move from Israel to America you are nearly 5 times more likely to be shot! If you move from Great Britain that risk goes up to 265 times more likely!

But remember everyone, guns don’t kill people, people do! šŸ˜‰
