Antecedentes

Existen más de 170,000 armas registradas legalmente en el país: si de las decomisadas por la PNC, menos del 10% están registradas legalmente, esto significa que podemos encontrarnos hasta un millón 600,000 armas circulando ilegalmente en el territorio nacional.

Background

There are more than 170,000 legally registered firearms in the country. If we take into account that less than 10% of the firearms seized by the National Police are legally registered, this means that there could be up to 1,600,000 illegal firearms circulating in Guatemala.
