    I might want to speak seriously about this subject. @Victor, where do you get these statistics?
    *cough* Mexico *cough*

    The only way to fix that is to decriminalize some drugs though and then there will be no need for cartels.

    I wouldn't worry about it Victor. There are plenty of safe places to visit in the United States, and I don't hear much about tourists getting killed here. Besides, you don't strike me as someone who would really want to visit the US, so you needn't concern yourself.

    Odds of anyone being shot in the USA are higher yes.

    Odds of it being you are practically zero. 15 times practically zero is almost nil.

    To put it in perspective, there are over 300 million people in the US. Let's say that 30,000 are shot to death per year (a number probably higher than what usually happens) that would be only 0.01%

    0.01% of people might get shot to death. That is a TINY number. The odds of you being in that 0.01% of 300,000,000 are vanishingly small.

    Frankly, this fear is patently absurd and unfounded.

    Or to put it differently, if you took all the people who got shot to death in one given year and put them in seats in Michigan Stadium (where the Wolverines play) it would fill less than a third of the seats.

    Less than a third of one stadium's capacity.

    For those Americans considering visiting Australia, you might like to consider that you have not twice the chance, or three times the chance, or four, but fifteen times the chance of being killed by spiders, sharks and baby-eating dingoes. Forewarned is forearmed.
