      I really don't know what metric you would use to make that claim, but I'm pretty sure it's inaccurate (total killed? Mexico beats us, at least under 2011 statistics; proportion killed? I know Panama has us licked there).

      We should just say "too high," but we shouldn't inflate the levels of gun violence either here or in Switzerland, and we shouldn't pretend that Switzerland's is anywhere close to ours.
