Map Of FBI Stats Shows Gun Ownership Per State — No. 1 Is Surprising

Mad World News – by Dom the Conservative

With each horrific mass shooting, liberals are chomping at the bit to immediately slam law-abiding gun owners with stricter legislation, as if those who don’t abuse their right to bear arms are to blame. However, as every new bill pushes us one step closer to the paranoid left’s ultimate goal of banning these particular weapons altogether, the inconvenient facts and statistics begin creeping up that shatter the argument that guns are the problem.  

Although numerous studies show that most mass shootings have one thing in common, and it isn’t the guns, the information-resistent anti-gunners refuse to acknowledge common sense, playing into their worst fears in the most irrational way.

Seeing as they don’t take too kindly to numbers, researchers thought that perhaps the gun grabbers will respond more intelligently to colorful pictures — but we’re not getting our hopes up.

According to compiled data from multiple studies, Movoto Real Estate created a detailed map from their findings, and the results are extraordinarily interesting.

Derived from a 2007 survey of small arms, as well as other studies, Movoto reveals the number of gun owners by state. To show a better comparison, each of the 50 states was associated with another country’s gun ownership.

“We then took the estimate of 88.8 guns per 100 people for the U.S.—which, seven years later, is likely higher—and used it to calculate each state’s estimated gun ownership, based on state populations from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 survey. (Of course, gun-ownership density varies throughout the country, but this number gave us an easy way to come up with comparable figures for all 50 states, since actual state-to-state numbers were not available.)

“Once we had the list of state numbers, we compared each one to Small Arms Survey’s list of countries and respective gun-ownership estimates, logging the nearest match.”

The top 3 states with the highest number of gun owners might come as a shock:

California’s total of 33.08 million guns is closest to China’s 40 million

Texas’ total of 22.33 million guns is closest to Germany’s 25 million

New York’s total of 17.2 million guns is closest to Pakistan’s 18 million

Surprisingly enough, 2 out of the 3 top states with the highest gun ownership are well-known for their liberal tendencies and left-leaning legislation, especially when it comes to the Second Amendment.


While this is shocking, there is another study that is nothing short of the icing on the constitutional cake.

Attempting to reassure readers that, if they feel nervous about guns, there are alternative measures they can take to satisfy their unwarranted delirium — but it only further disproves the anti-gun narrative.

Capitalizing on their specialty, Movoto created a list of the top 10 safest cities in the U.S., summarized from the 2013 FBI Uniform Crime Report.

The 10 safest American cities were then ranked:

1. Gilbert, AZ

2. Irvine, CA

3. Fremont, CA

4. Plano, TX

5. Chula Vista, CA

6. Chandler, AZ

7. Henderson, NV

8. Boise, ID

9. Scottsdale, AZ

10. Irving, TX

According to the FBI’s unbiased statistics, 5 of the top 10 safest cities in the U.S. are located in 2 of the top 3 states with the highest gun ownership. Coincidence? Gun owners know better than to chalk this up to sheer luck.

When conservatives, liberals, and even the non-political face a bad guy illegally possessing a banned firearm, they all call the good guys with guns to come to their rescue. Regardless of your political beliefs, the truthful can at least admit that the only thing that can stop someone from shooting up another school, church, or military base is an armed protector.

Not everyone can earn a badge, but with the proper preparation and respect, anyone can be the difference between a mass shooting and a prevented atrocity.

  1. This is largely a waste of time from a statistical standpoint, not only due to the ridiculosity of comparing gun owners to foreign populations, but because the author is unclear as to whether he’s talking about guns per state, or gun owners per state. (as the two quotes below illustrate)

    Since the numbers he provides indicate more than 90% gun ownership, I’d have to guess that “number of guns per state” is more likely than “number of gun owners per state”, but it’s really anybody’s guess.

    What the article does exemplify is that statistical data is useless unless you have detailed information regarding how that data was collected.

    That’s a pretty map, Dom the Conservative (author), unfortunately you wasted your time making it, because the data you’ve collected means absolutely nothing to readers.

    “Derived from a 2007 survey of small arms, as well as other studies, Movoto reveals the number of gun owners by state.”

    “We then took the estimate of 88.8 guns per 100 people for the U.S.—which, seven years later, is likely higher..”

  2. Truth is our government WANTS to kill us off! Look at GMOs, vaccines, denial of adequate healthcare, letting known killers back into our country(Obama loves them if they are Mooselems!) And now that we actually have Russians and Chinese soldiers in the US, the race is on for the gun-grabbing! My question is how long can they keep lying and getting others to agree or go along with their lies?

  3. When Adam and Eve chose satan over God , God stepped back and let satan rule them. Satanism is our problem. Not Guns. Soon God will reclaim the earth and Jesus will rule the Earth with a Rod of Iron. Big Pharma has the population on mind altering drugs and that is the main reason we have the shootings.
    Put satan and mind bending drugs together and you have a box of dynamite.May Jesus Christ return and soon.

  4. your assumption using 88.8 guns per hundred is a flawed concept mostly anyone owning guns owns more than 1 gun, anyone who enjoys guns owns many perhaps a dozen or more, between myself and 3 neighbors are perhaps 3-400 guns and millions of rounds of ammo strategicly placed where they cannot be found–come on we have been threatened with gun/ammo siezures for 20 plus years do you think for a moment there are not like minded people prepared to defend our rights with the barrel of a gun–think again there are millions of us,put foreign troops on our soil and find out.

  5. No matter how you feel about DEMOCRATS or REPUBLICANS, you should find this most interesting…….

    In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States

    In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States , who later died from the wound.

    In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of

    In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a
    Lockheed Martin plant.

    In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in
    Virginia Tech.

    In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep.Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.

    In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and
    shot and killed 12 people.

    In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in
    Minneapolis .

    In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a
    school in Newtown , CT.

    As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship

    Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.

    Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any
    of these shootings and murders. please dont misunderstand me , I dont support Republicans either , due to the fact i feel its the two party system against us Americans , I also dont subscribe to the above list as all PROVEN TRUE events .. so , im just pointing out a very disturbing trend thats been going on for a long time , And i think if Hitlery gets her self in the presidency we are in for one hell of a blood bath

    It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns, or be in politics for that matter .

  6. Plano, TX??? WTF? Plano, TX is where I work and everyone in the area knows it is known as the most violent city in the country as far as domestic violence is concerned, according to statistics. So how in the hell is it the safest?

  7. So California has the most guns, yet it is so difficult to get one. Same with NY. I’m confused. The people all must have unregistered and illegal guns by Commie standards. Good for them. They just better be shooting in the right direction when the SHTF.
