Mexico and Brazil have some of the highest gun related deaths and also strick gun control. it you have a crimnal element like drugs, guns are available. even European countries have seen an increase of crime because of migrants from high crime areas. it's not laws not physical location Germany but rather people's culture(Norther Africa/Syria etc) that determine crime/violence. most of the USA violence is in certain cities, if you address ineffective law enforcement, education, and lack of intact families that would change violence rates not gun laws. https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2018-01-03/germany-must-come-to-terms-with-refugee-crime

Friend of a friend from WAAAAY back showed me the scars on his scalp from when he was at a dance and he got stabbed in the head with a pitch fork, so yeah gun control that DEFIANTLY stops violence, no one would EVER use an alternative if you could even manage to actually control guns.
