U.S. citizens own 270 million of the world's 875 million known firearms, according to the Small Arms Survey 2007 by the Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International Studies.

Even though we have the highest ownership rate of handguns, rifles, etc. I fear it will mean little against the greatest arms dealer in the world: the U.S.

A better measure would be to compare the privately owned weapons number to the military owned weapons number of a nation.
