Firearm related deaths per 100,000 (Homicide only)
US = 3.7 (World Ranking 14)
Switzerland = 0.52 (World Ranking 31)

Switzerland doesn't have an army. Therefore, their system isn't comparable. They also have a very high standard of living and crime is low. The number of people in Switzerland is so low it's like one large city. Again, not comparable.

I don't think anywhere compares to America for gun violence, save for possibly South Africa. Or Afghanistan.
