Europe has ca. 711 million people( as of 2010) and the US has just under 315 million (as of today). So the population of Europe is more than double that of the US.

Part of a longer article about gun control in the US. Got a feeling that if you look at gun crime at an european level rather than country by country he could be right. Thoughts?
Most of those European shootings were done using legally held firearms. If anything they just help to strengthen the argument for even stricter gun control.
These "stats" are also fairly pointless as the population of the EU and Europe as a whole are 200million and 400million higher than that of the US.

There are more shootings here in Northern Ireland (where gun ownership is tightly regulated) every year than there are on the Moon (Unregulated).

You pick a micro-scenario that pleases your eye and translate it into a macro-environment? How silly can it get?

Yea, we should throw out data that messes up your desired average. That's science!
