Guns, Guns, Guns

Here's some reference sites:

Firearms laws of the world
In Europe, Serbia, Bosnia and Switzerland rule the roost. In Asia, Pakistan has the most liberal gun laws; most Asian counties have very strict gun laws or allow no guns at all except for military and police.

Firearm ownership of the world
USA - we're #1!!!
Thanks to the 2nd Amendment, Americans have 113 guns per 100 population (more guns than people) followed by Serbia (70), Yemen (55) and Switzerland (46). Switzerland counts military weapons kept at home by soldiers so they are really closer to 25.

Murder by firearms for the world
 We're #18. The top five are Honduras, Venezuela, Swaziland, Jamaica, and Guatemala.

Largest US Cities Responsible for Two Thirds of Gun Homicides
Of course most of these cities are run by liberal Democrats in predominantly democrat controlled states. According to the FBI, in 2014 there were 14,249 homicides. If the 2/3 estimate holds true, about 9,500 took place where Democrats reign supreme and where gun control is the tightest.
