Speaking broadly, is US society just more violent as a whole, compared to Western Europe, especially in things like murders, rape, and non political mass shootings? I mean both Western European countries and the US have bad arwas, but the bad areas in US cities are a lot more violent compared to their European counterparys? What causes US society to have a higher overall level of violence compared to Western European countries? Is the US basically the most violent society in this planet when adjusted to per capital GDP levels? Would banning guns help lower violent crime to Western European levels?
