Gun Ownership Rate In The Usa

Jan 26, 2016 | Usa | Barplot

One of the constant topics in the news are the mass shootings in the United States and the debates related to gun control, the 2nd amendment of their constitution and the almost impossible effort to regulate this market. This is particularly true now that they have presidential elections at the end of this year.

So how does it look the gun ownership in this country compared to the rest of the world (gun ownership per 100 habitants):

I guessed the USA had the highest gun ownership rate and that turned out to be true, but I never realised how high it was. It seems crazy to me that a country has more firearms than habitants!. The Washington Post has an interesting article where they discuss this issue.
