Yehhhhh South Africa doesn't have a gun ban. But it's good to see their murder rate coming down. Used to be in the 50s

Where's a link to the information?

I did find USA 2010 data from the CDC:

All homicides
  • Number of deaths: 16,259
  • Deaths per 100,000 population: 5.3
Firearm homicides
  • Number of deaths: 11,078
  • Deaths per 100,000 population: 3.6
