Anti-gun ad in America.

There are many other differences between our country and those other countries. For example, income inequality. If we compare our country to other countries with similar income inequality, and strict gun control laws, we find the US is actually less violent. These would be countries like Mexico, Columbia, and Russia.

When you look broadly at international comparisons, you find that there is no evidence gun control causes crime rates or murder rates to decrease: http://www.bostonmagazine.com/news/blog/2013/08/30/harvard-gun-study-no-decrease-in-violence-with-ban/

If we look at trends over time within each country, we find that there is no evidence that gun control has actually reduced overall murder or violent crime rates anywhere in the world. Australia and the UK both saw violent crime rates increase after their gun bans in the 90s, and their homicide rates decreased at about the same pace as they were before the gun bans. Meanwhile, the US violent crime and murder rates are at 40+ year lows, and the gun homicide rate has decreased 49% since 1993. http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2013/05/07/gun-homicide-rate-down-49-since-1993-peak-public-unaware/

All this while we have more and more guns per capita, and looser laws including shall issue concealed carry and stand your ground laws. I’m not saying that looser laws caused our violence rates to go down, but it certainly doesn’t seem to have caused them to go up at all. Our society is becoming safer at a more rapid pace than other countries which implimented strict gun control like the uk and australia. Sure, they started out safer than the US, but that was back when even they didn’t have strict gun control and yet they were already safer. This shows us that it is a factor of other differences, not gun laws, since when our gun laws were similar in the past they still had much lower homicide rates than the US.
