WOW! Regardless of where you stand on gun control-the fact remains the USA is one gun-toting country

found this exploring around the intertubes:

Regardless of where you stand on gun control, the fact remains that America is one gun-toting country. There are 89 guns for every 100 civilians, according to the 2011 Small Arms Survey. That amounts to roughly 270 million guns owned nationwide, far and away the highest gun ownership rate in the world. With less than 5 percent of the world’s population, the U.S. is home to anywhere between 35 and 50 percent of all civilian-owned guns on earth.

2. "Yellow" might be a better color choice than black.
