>> America is 11th per 100,000 deaths by firearms.
Have you looked at the 10 above? The first European country on the list is #22. Interestingly the US is the only country on that list with more guns than people.
If you are going to quote numbers, this is possibly more telling:
"The death toll between 1968 and 2011 eclipses all wars ever fought by the country. According to research by Politifact, there were about 1.4 million firearm deaths in that period, compared with 1.2 million US deaths in every conflict from the War of Independence to Iraq."
