Once your done explaining the crime rate difference between Japan (Strict Gun Control) and the US then explain how your factors (population/crime rates) mean anything.

Have you thought maybe population density might factor into crime rates?
Japan 349.1 people per sq km
UK 262 people per sq km
US 34.6 people per sq km

Are you going to join the majority of people here. Find one fact to support your claim, choose it, and disregard the rest? You look silly pumping up a false correlation with such a fallacy.
