It seems that the United States has 90 guns for every 100 people, making it the most heavily armed civilian population in the world!
Yemen comes in at second place, with a pitiful 61 guns for every 100 people. Pikers!
Of course, the statistics are rather misleading. Most of the people involved in the shooting sports here in the United States have more than one gun, which skews things a bit. I think this is an indication of wealth, since people here can afford to buy more than one of these really expensive precision instruments, just as they can afford to take part in more than one firearm related sport.
The director of the Small Arms Survey said as much himself.
“Weapons ownership may be correlated with rising levels of wealth, and that means we need to think about future demand in parts of the world where economic growth is giving people larger disposable income,”
Anyway, I think it is just great that the United States leads the world yet again.
