MILWAUKEE - In the wake of recent mass violence in Wisconsin and the U.S., a published report compares gun laws in America to those of other countries, and the possible results from those laws.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune made those comparisons to Brazil, Japan and Switzerland.

The issue has come up on a number of fronts in Wisconsin:
- The new concealed carry law
- The Sikh Temple shooting
- The Brookfield salon shooting
- Sheriff David Clarke's comments about gun ownership
