I would also like to see something stating that the low homicide rate with NFA guns are not at all associated with tighter controls.
Britain has far more crime vs the entire population than the US. Britain also has tighter gun regulations...

Britain: 10.4% (population: 62,641,000)
US: 3.8% (population: 311,591,917)
