[Comment] Firearm legislation and mortality in the USA

Cross-nationally, the USA has by far the worst firearm-injury problem among the 24 high-income member countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.1 Although the USA has non-gun-related crime rates similar to these other nations, it has much higher rates of unintentional gun deaths, gun suicides, gun crimes, gun homicides, and overall homicides.1 For example, findings from 2010 show that the USA has 25 times the rate of firearm homicide compared with other high-income countries.
