Timms was taken to a London hospital where his condition was described as "not life threatening," the press office said.

There are just over 300 million people in the U.S. and around 60 Million in the UK. so, you're right I should have used murder rate per capita – in this case, if the UK had a comparable handgun murder rate there would have been 70 murders inthe UK, as compared to 9,000 in the U.S. . Thanks so much for helping make my point even more clearly.
