Gun homicides per 100,000 - in the US - 3.7, in New Zealand - 0.17, in Great Britain - 0.04. What does that mean?

Some say, if there are no guns people will find another way, even if you look at homicides, US 5.22, New Zealand 1.25, Great Britan 1.57, per 100,000.
One thing I find interesting about these numbers is if you take the 1.53 non-gun homicides in GB and add it to the 3.7 gun deaths in the US you get almost exactly the 5.22 US overall number. Which would indicate that all gun homicides are extra homicides.
(Just added this in) Here are some more conservative ideals on gun control. Arming teachers is old way of thinking; a fresher, bolder approach is to have volunteers.
