Reality Check: An "Apples to Apples" comparison of U.S. and U.K. violent crime rates

(FOX19) -

It is a Reality Check that has received attention from all over the nation.

Ben's fact check of arguments made by CNN host Piers Morgan and a look at the violent crime rates in the U.S. and U.K. 

But were those numbers really an apples to apples comparison? 

Tonight, Ben is setting the record straight and asking if the concern is really about lowing gun death rates then why aren't pro gun control advocates going after handguns?

This is a Reality Check you won't see anywhere else.
