We’ve known for a long time now that areas with the highest gun ownership in the USA experience the least crime on a per capita basis.
Now it appears that what is true for the U.S.A. is true for the rest of the world as well as.
The maps below made by the U.N. office on Drugs and Crime (circa 2007) clearly show that where gun ownership is highest, crime is lowest on a per capita basis.
Here is the map for gun ownership:
Notice that the United States has the highest level of private gun ownership per 100 people versus the rest of the world.
Now, here’s the map showing homicides:
Notice the correlation between high levels of gun ownership and lower homicide rates and vice-versa. As these maps show, “more guns, less crime” is just as true around the world as well as it is here in the USA.
These facts will be extremely important to keep in mind during the 2016 elections as more and more liberal politicians scream that more gun control is needed to keep people safer.
