Surely a few of those plugged in the U.S. were British . . . just trying to keep your total up! LOL

To be fair though, USA has several times as many people, AND Dick Cheney was on a political hiatus in '99. He probably constitutes a large part of the difference.

Just for the record, I wasn't posting this to highlight anything or make claim that Britain is safer/better. North America is gargantuan in comparison, so there's obviously going to be a higher rate of gun fatalities.  Just a fact I happened to read today. Smile
