From The Economist print edition- Apr 30th 2008:
An estimated 875m small arms are in circulation worldwide: one for every seven people on the planet. Nearly three-quarters of these are owned by civilians. And about 80% of those guns in civilian hands are found in just 30 countries, according to the Small Arms Survey, a research group. Although America accounts for 40% of firearms in civilian ownership, people put them to more deadly use elsewhere. The gun murder rate in Colombia and South Africa, for example, is much higher than in America.

ya they was just talkin bout this on berettafourm.

the anti's like to say the US has the highest gun violence crime rate.. but obviously it's not true.

my only question is how do get some more, 40% is'nt enough we need at least 50% :p

So according to that graph, there is about 90 guns per 100 people in the US right? So think about how many guns you own then take that number times .9 (90%) and that's how many unarmed people there are in this country. WOW!!!
