Americans Now Own 40% Of The World’s One Billion Guns

Of the 857 million guns owned by civilians, the Small Arms Survey says 393.3 million are held in the United States, which is “more than those held by civilians in the other top 25 countries combined.”

To clarify – there are more civilian-owned guns in the US than there are people.

And while headlines have proclaimed a slowdown in gunmaker revenues, as @StephenGutkowski noted, the numbers are still astounding – In May alone, American civilians bought somewhere around 2 million firearms.

  1. We do not trust liberals and the UN. As a result, we choose to prepare ourselves for a possible infringement of our rights by either.

  2. Steve Montgomery says:

    I think I will go and buy a couple more. If this comes to a civil war, which I believe it is coming (some say it is already here) then I am on the side of the group that has most of the guns. Won’t be much of a fight when one side has 80% + -- of the guns. Just saying
