So you don't want to talk about why a baby just tragically shot his mother?

Ok let's look at overall murder rates with whatever weapon then - wiki to the rescue:

Count is total and rate per 100,000 population per year
Intentional homicide, as defined by UNODC, is "unlawful death purposefully inflicted on a person by another person".
So I assume this excludes all your recent cop killings as these were 'lawful'

Country / Rate / Count / Year listed

United Kingdom / 1.0 / 653 / 2011
United States / 4.7 / 14,827 / 2012
