Firearms laws

In Mexico, crime is rife. And the firearm law is one of the most severe.

Ukraine has lower crime level, somewhat similar gun licensing.

In the US you are free to buy a weapon and many states would issue a concealed carry permit. That leads to much lower crime rates than in aforementioned countries.

In Switzerland, you may own a full-auto rifle, shoot in all cantons freely. The crime level does nothing to correlate with firearm law.

In the opposite, use of firearms gives assault more protection.
