Top 10 Firearm Owning Countries in the World


When you travel for business or leisure, it is important to know the key aspects of the local environment that might impact you travel health, safety, security and risk management choices. One key aspect to consider is the access, control and proliferation of firearms within a specific location or region. Here is a good infographic that sums up the official, ownership levels of firearms around the world, based on population and percentage of ownership. Now consider the percentage of illegally owned guns and use in those countries, and those not listed, and factor this into your knowledge and behaviour/activity in these locations when travelling.
