Amount of guns owned in each U.S. state compared to the gun ownership of entire countries is alarming

by Sam Ranard

If these numbers don’t make you question (at least for a second) your state’s gun control policies, than I don’t know what will. According to the Small Arms Survey, out of the 18.8 million Florida residents, 16.7 million guns are owned. To put that number in perspective, the entire population of all of Mexico owns only 15.5 millions guns. To further clarify, if all of the guns owned by Florida residents were evenly distributed, almost 90% of ALL Florida residents would have a gun. In the United States there are 89 guns owned for every 100 U.S. citizens. No matter what your stance is on gun control, you have to admit, these numbers are pretty incredible.
