Where Are the World's Small Arms?

Kristofferson's picture
Weapons have been around since the first human hurled a rock at his neighbor. But with time and innovation, the weapons have gotten deadlier. Instead of throwing rocks, we now shoot guns, and with approximately eight million new guns produced each year, firearms are almost as readily available as stones on the ground. It doesn’t matter if you are living in a war zone or not, a gun can be found close by, especially in the United States, where approximately 270 million guns are in the hands of citizens with an average of 90 guns per 100 people.
