If guns keep you safe, why is the USA more dangerous than the UK?

One of the most common arguments for gun ownership is personal protection of family and property. Every gun based question on GAG has a string of members claiming guns keep America safe and should they give them up criminals would have a field day.

Given the huge number of guns in America it should be the safest place on earth, but. it isn't. www.nationmaster.com/.../Violent-crime shows violent crime is far higher in the USA even taking in population differences. Comparing the USA with other countries shows similar results.

So if we buy the American argument that guns reduce crime then why does America have one of the highest crime rates in the world.
