Iceland is awash in guns, yet it has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the world

According to the 2011 Global Study on Homicide by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Iceland's homicide rate between 1999-2009 never went above 1.8 per 100,000 population on any given year. On the other hand, the United States had homicide rates between 5.0 and 5.8 per 100,000 population during that same stretch. Could the difference in homicides rates be due to Iceland's lack of diversity?

Maybe the low crime rate in Iceland has something to do with the Icelanders throwing their Jew bankers in prison. That probably reduced crime about 80-90%.

Jews tend to commit financial crimes while blacks and Hispanics commit the violent ones.
