Dennis Henigan Makes Up Some Numbers

In the latest Huffpo piece to try and talk up their 'groundbreaking' (no) candlelight vigil, he makes this claim:
Our gun homicide rate is 20 times the combined rates of other western, industrialized nations.
Really? The US 'firearm homicide' rate for 2010 was 2.84/100k. For it to be 20X higher, the rate for all 'western, industrialized nations' COMBINED would have to be less than .142/100K.

How does he get such numbers? Oh right, by using Joyce Foundation funded 'research' by Hemenway and selectively chosen countries while ignoring countries like Russia which has over 4x the homicide rate of the US along w/ some other qualifiers.

It's the age old formula. We are so much better than those damn wogs.

They are Leftists. They don't recognize their patronizing view of the world as the racism that it is.
