Rosenthal notes that America’s crime rates are actually quite good by comparison with the countries she’s visited:

‘In 2011, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Honduras led the world in homicides, with 91.6 per 100,000 people. But rates were also alarmingly high in El Salvador (69.1), Jamaica (40.9), Colombia (31.4) and Guatemala (38.5). Venezuela’s was 45.1 in 2010 but is expected to be close to to 80 this year. The United States’ rate is about 5.’

And the United States has a constitution that guarantees the right to keep and bear arms. What a paradox!
