    It is all the worse that this article was posted in so many sites. I don’t have time to check every country, but I know the article is false because I personally know of three countries on the list that allow ownership of guns and carry permits. They are Ecuador, Guatemala and Panama. I live in Panama, own three handguns and two shotguns (and my wife owns a handgun) and have a Permiso de Armas that allows me to carry concealed just about everywhere except banks and government buildings.

    You should be responsible enough to verify such information before publishing it.

      Thanks for your input. Can you confirm or deny the validity of the rest of the statistics?

    • These stats Bob were sent to me by a friend and yes I posted them and there were 8 other links and corrections to this original post before it was taken from jericho777…
      Being irresponsible as you have laid claims against me are wrongly placed…I had the information I am leaving you here and an additional 7 other post correcting and repudiating some of the claims here…I also originally posted the updated stats that I researched and found to be closer to the truth…I am not going to pull these stats, but are trying to repost the original links and corrections that were in fact posted to these stats here…
      When I originally posted this blog, I cleaned up the stats that I had seen to be in err. At the time WordPress were going through changes and some how, those changes effected my jericho777 and the links and corrections that I had added and put in place were dropped and did not know of this until 3 weeks ago when it was brought to my attention. I am now taking the steps to repair the damage there…
      Had I been given the opportunity to clarify this and I was not, I could have easily explained what had happen. The reason it’s taken so long to get this repaired is that on four occasions now the renewed blog has dropped the links and I am only aware of it when another brings it to my attention…
      I have an idiot on board now who simply cannot understand this and prefers to disrespect and belittle those on this site making an ass out of himself and are here because he keeps pointing this way…
      So, here I am, with just a few of the post that came originally with these stats, as it was my intentions to clarify them and to repudiate some of it’s claims…
      That Bob was my being responsible, had I only been asked….

      Types of Guns in Panama – You can buy handguns (semi-auto handguns, revolvers), rifles and shotguns. You can have hi-capacity magazines in any type gun, no restrictions. You can not have full-auto firearms. You can have semi-auto rifles and handguns. You can not have a silencer. Guns are costly in Panama, figure 50% higher than North America on name brand guns like Ruger, Sig Sauer, Smith, Remington, etc. Gun dealers generally do not have a large inventory in Panama. Expect to see 10 or so rifles and shotguns in stock and perhaps as many handguns. Many of the guns will be cheapies from Argentina and Russia. The dealer can order you what you want but expect a wait of 2-3 months or more then add in the time for the permission to buy the gun to go through.

      The Gun Buying Process in Panama – First you go to the gun store and prove to them you are eligible to buy a firearm by way of Residency, Pensionado, etc. Next you select a gun and pay for it. Then the gun store will have you go to the bathroom and pee in a cup which is a medical sample cup. Then you will be given a form to take to a government health office for a finger prick blood test – DNA sample. Plan on a wait to get your blood sample. Next the gun store sends the paperwork through the police system. It goes to three departments and can take 6-10 weeks to clear. When it is complete you get the gun. More than one gun can be bought at the same time. You also get a gun permit which is a folded piece of green cardboard paper which a photo on it. You can enter up to 10 guns on the permit. Panama does not limit amount of guns so if you earn more than 10 guns an additional listing page will be provided for the permit. The police will take ballistic sample of a fired round.

      Ecuador has very strict gun laws. Handguns and pistols are not permitted (only police). And sport guns like shotguns are permitted if registered with the Military Command Post (Comando Conjunto de las Fuerzas Armadas).

      Reasons for the low gun ownership in Guatemala is due to the strictness of gun ownership…

  2. Debra Hegmann says:

    With the drug cartels coming over our borders, with Muslim Radicals invading our country and laying dormant till they receive instructions, with the current President who has these radical positions in changing our country. There is no way in hell that any American should give up the right to protect themselves, family and neighbors.

    Even if they pass all the laws they want People will go back to owning guns secretly. I like the idea of registering and even require licensing, but this information should never be released like they did in Putnam county.

    I also believe our law enforcement should carry semi-automatics, if the drug cartel and the drug dealers have them, then our protectors should be properly armed.

  3. Kramer says:

    Where is the WHO.org link to this data. Without a link, I’m skeptical of these numbers. (I think they are true but I need a link to be 100% sure.)

  4. Rogue Warrior says:

    I don’t need a Poll, or Article to tell me that I’m safer as an individual and family by owning a weapon. The 2nd Amendment is all the proof I need!

  5. Bob Ryan says:

    I know that our fearless leaders don’t give a shit about the facts, but anyone who reads this should send a copy of it to your favorite criminal in Congress.

  6. Virgil says:

    Hi: A couple questions.

    (1) Is this post saying that the murder rates of the countries listed above would have been less if the gun control of the listed states was more relaxed? I guess I’m sort of asking what’s the point of the post? I’m sure it’s accurate in it’s statement, I’m just wondering what I’m supposed to take away from it, or if I pass it on, how do I present it.

    (2) Was one of the 8 links listed before gunpolicy.org?

    I’ve been using the list referenced in the wikipedia site and looking at the other side of the coin…those with lower rates and still yet pretty strict gun control. Findings are interesting, and I’m not sure really what it does to your list above and how it should be taken. That’s why I ask.

    Man if you went through all those you listed…you did a lot of work. I’ve only made it through the states that have less then 2.0 murder rate and it’s tedious.

  7. Roger Bret says:

    Guns, guns guns. Killing with them has been going on since they invented gun POWDER. They were very useful to protect us against animals that would eat us, or kill us animals that WE wanted to eat. But, one way or the other they had only one purpose when invented…to KILL something or someone.
    It first started with clubs then spears, then knives, then swords…then someone invented gun POWDER, in order to make a gun actually work. All it’s done is make killing some THING, or someONE…easier, but the killing still goes on, so if you blame the ownership of guns in the hands of wacko killers(who could pass a background check because they’ve never killed people YET), is like blaming a shark for chomping off your leg because you let it dangle in the water with a big cut on your ankle draining a blood trail over a mile behind your boat!

    You want a solution to random killing with guns, let rational, clear thinking citizens CARRY a gun, concealed (so it doesn’t freak out the liberals and people who think guns have a mind of their own and shoot people all by themselves) to be used in cases just like this one.

    Why do you think there’s there is very little random gun violence in “Concealed to carry” states, where law abiding citizens are armed? it’s because criminals and “Temporary crazies” are afraid of you reacting with violent force.

    These school shooters, or potential killers, would have easily realized and would be very mindful of the fact that they would be shot instantly by one of the armed teachers (if there WERE any) and would not even BEGIN to attempt a stunt like this if they KNEW the teachers were armed.

    ABOVE GUNS AND ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE
    Forget about guns and crazies getting them. Realize one thing that is self-evident. THE EVIL IS TAKING OVER IN THE WORLD. It’s been happening since we’ve walked out of the cave and invented the wheel! Each generation (according to the last one) has gotten worse, more permissive, and sexually vile than the last one. 15 years ago you couldn’t say the “F” word, now it’s all over the place. Sexually explicit shows that talk about all the ways you can have multiple sexual partners are on prime time sitcoms. Kids’ PlayStation games are totally violent. What do you expect for results in society, with games that TEACH kids to decapitate their opponent so you can see the blood gush out of their necks, because it gets more “Points”!?? Is it any wonder that this random type of killing happens more and more from people who USED to be THESE KIDS!

    We don’t need more security, more, gun control, we need more VALUE control. VALUE CONTROL in the lives of our kids that will eventually grow up to be either the KILLERS, or MINISTERS, taking lives/souls or saving them.

    GROW UP PEOPLE and see what is called reality, be there WITH your kids, guide them yourself instead of paying somebody else to do it. And…if they want Play Station with “Tour of Duty” or “Killer Elite” let them BUY it when they can get a job and make enough money to do so. Hopefully by then they’ll have learned a few values of their own on how to get along in society without killing people for real!

    Don’t get me started
    Roger –

  8. Darin Ashley says:

    Thank you all for your efforts to provide useful and factual information for the great gun debate! We must protect freedom and life with facts, so we are less likely to have to defend it with guns.

    In the universe there are only two ways to get power: earn it, or take it–which is the path to evil.
