    with respect to

    The essay compares the U.S. and Britain with respect to their gun policy and their crime rates.
    I may be annoying some people by now, but is the usage of 'with respect to' correct in the quoted sentence?

    Re: with respect to

    It ought to be "gun policies" as there are two different countries being discussed who have differing gun laws.

    I agree with Anglika. The use is correct, but "policies" is better.
