We're Number One! (in Gun Ownership)

From Thomas P.M. Barnett's blog:
Here's the top five: US at 89 small arms per 100 people, Yemen at 55 (a gun-&-knife-toting culture without peer), Switzerland at 46 (who knew?), Finland at 45 (still expecting the Russians), and Serbia at 38 (just got in the habit, I guess). ---source, the Swiss 2007 Small Arms Survey, 28 Oct., 2008

OK, yeah, I know - the U.S. has a unique culture. But more small arms per capita than freakin' Yemen for cryin' out loud ?! Sheesh... feel safer, do ya ?
