With over 280 million guns in civilian hands in our country and over 30,000 gun-related deaths each year, Americans should be concerned about the proliferation of guns in the United States. Due to the easy availability of firearms, the U.S. is the most violent industrialized nation on earth. In fact, we own more than half of all guns owned worldwide. And, it is estimated that more than 34 percent of households have a gun--in other words, our nation is swimming in a sea of deadly firearms.

Due to freedom given to media and lack of gun control laws (constitutional guarantee to carry arms) it appears USA is the most violent. They publish the statistics about crimes and indiscriminations of their citizens. There are many countries who just don\'t publish such a thing nor allow others to do it. So it\'s not possible to tell with any certainty.
