Here's a little tidbit from the Toronto Star, Sunday, July 28, 1996  which
might help add some more murk to the discussion on escalation of violence in
media, with special reference to statistics from various countries:
 
FIREARM DEATHS
 
Japan (125 mil pop)       38 homicides by gun     (0.3 deaths per million pop)
 
U.K.   (58 mil pop)       137                      2.3
 
Canada  (29 mil pop)      172                      5.9
 
Switzerland (6.9 mil)     96                       13.8
 
U.S.A.  (260 mil)         16,315                   62.5
 
I wonder where Norway would fit into this scheme of things.
