According to The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the USA has a murder rate of 4.1 per 100,000 people. Pakistan sports a 7.7 per 100K, Russia a 13.12, South Africa 16.25 and Kenya would be the only one lower with a 2.76.
Russia, and Pakistan do not provide the rates of guns by firearms, only South Africa does and it comes to almost the same as the murder rate while the US drops to 2.97 per 100K. It is interesting that he cherry picks the data and somehow forgets the 110 countries ahead of the US in murders.
But he is Robert Reich, Clinton operative. Lying is his default line and operating system.
