12 Countries With No Gun Laws and Low Crime Rates in the World

This article will bring you to the list of countries with no gun laws and low crime rates in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice where to move if you are planning so. I must confess I like guns, although I pursue archery in my free time. Nevertheless I don’t consider getting the license to keep guns at home. In my home country we don’t need a license for keeping bows at home.

Here’s where Insider Monkey’s scoring process comes in. They used three criteria to score — the number of civilian firearms per 100 people, number of homicides per 100,000 people, and percentage of those homicides committed with guns. For a number of civilian firearms per 100 people, they awarded 3 points if the number was 50 or above, 2 points if the number was between 40 and 49 and 1 point if the number was between 30-39. Anything below 30 got 0 points, so this variable proves that a country that scored high in this category definitely has high gun ownership. Check out the whole article with a great methodology on Insider Monkey’s site.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of countries with no gun laws and low crime rates in the world from their list.

The first country can be the United States. The US owns more firearms than anyone on this list, though the recent violence in the country took the other criteria down. There’s no telling how much longer our gun laws will remain lenient, but pro-gun owners might want to start stocking up on weapons and ammunition while they can. The second country on pur list for now is Sweden. There are a number of requirements in Sweden for gun owners, like a clean record and a shooting club membership. Guns are also primarily used here for sports shooting or hunting, but there must be a lot of sports shooters and hunters here because there’s definitely a lot of guns. The third country for today should be Norway where sports shooting and hunting are big, which is the main reason gun ownership abounds. But it sure helps the crime rate in the process.
