US States Gun Ownership Compared To Countries

Earlier today I ran across a post from the Motovo real estate blog. They have done some considerable research to compare states and the number of guns per state. They then created the infographic below which shows how each state compares to the country which has roughly the same number of guns as the state listed.

This infographic is a real eye opener as far as the number of guns in states like California which compares best with China! Check the graph to see how your state compares with which country around the world!

UPDATE: Keen eyed readers noticed that the number of guns owned = 88% of the population … in EVERY STATE. I am calling BS on these numbers. There is no way NY state has the same ratio of guns:population as TX.
