Confirmation bias? They have the closest gun ownership ratio to the US. If guns are the problem, it is a perfect country to compare.

I hope you're being facetious.

Plenty of articles out there but this one outlines crime prone age group aging out as the primary factor.

I've only been a gun owner for 6 weeks and I don't think I ever made a post saying that I own a firearm.

Regardless, part of the reason why we've been able to tamp down on gun control is because of the statistically declining rate of gun violence in the US. Senators and Congressmen screaming about the Assault Weapons Ban and how its repeal would unleash a bloodbath were proven wrong.

In a country where there is 1 gun per person (although only 1 gun per household), we do extraordinarily well with gun violence. If you legalized marijuana and cocaine, the gun homicide rate would halve within a year.

I'm a strong supporter of gun rights, so I could see the confusion. I am also a strong supporter of drug legalization and I don't do drugs. See, also, prostitution.
