LOL!! Mexicos exteme violence is from American guns now ROFL!! Whew yep no other suppliers and factors. That right there is a desperate excuse and the logic of ban it and everything will be ok.
Then you've failed to do that as well since the US homicide is 4 times higher than Australia`s. But congratulations, you`re officially an idiot. An idiots opinion - forgive me for not taking it seriously. Congratulations on failing to provide any data to reinforce your claims and failing to prepare a logical argument.

they kept homicide records back in 1000 A.D.?
Yes. In England, anyway. It was a very organised country, although the really high level of bureaucracy came after the Normans had finished smashing their conquest into place. So from ~1080 or so. There are miles of records still existing today. I mean that literally - one archive alone has more than 100 miles of shelf space (and therefore a lot more than 100 miles of records) and there are many archives. The bulk of the records, especially that far back, are about law, money or both. There's not much left from before ~1200 (parchment is durable but far from indestructable), but there`s some and there are enough references to establish that they did keep at least some records of court cases back in 1000AD.
Any national homicide rate in 1000 AD is mostly a guess, though. There were local records, almost all of them lost over the centuries.
