We Americans sure do love our guns:
U.S. citizens own 270 million of the world’s 875 million known firearms, according to the Small Arms Survey 2007 by the Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International Studies.
About 4.5 million of the 8 million new guns manufactured worldwide each year are purchased in the United States, it said.
The study also notes that
“There is roughly one firearm for every seven people worldwide. Without the United States, though, this drops to about one firearm per 10 people.”
