Figures from the Small Arms Survey, a Swiss-based leading research project, estimate that there were 390 million guns in circulation worldwide in 2018.

The US ratio of 120.5 firearms per 100 residents, up from 88 per 100 in 2011, far surpasses that of other countries around the world.

Multiple studies show that where people have easy access to firearms, gun-related deaths tend to be more frequent.
