On Gun Violence, the United States is an Outlier

31 May 2022

Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation

Among 64 high-income countries and territories, the United States stands out for its high levels of gun violence. The US ranks eighth out of 64 for homicides by firearm (age-adjusted). ​Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, two US territories, rank first and third on that list. Firearm injuries tend to be more frequent in places where people have easy access to firearms, according to findings from the 2018 Global Burden of Disease study published in the Journal of...

InSight Crime's 2021 Homicide Round-Up

1 February 2022

InSight Crime

In 2021, most countries in Latin America and the Caribbean experienced a marked increase in murders. Resurgent violence was to be expected after some of the world's longest COVID-19 lockdowns were lifted. Much of the population found themselves sinking deeper into poverty. With schools late to reopen, teenagers returned to the streets with little to do, making them prime targets for recruitment. The pandemic also made law enforcement more difficult. Police were...

Gun licencing on the rise in Colombia

18 March 2021

Tiempo (Colombia)

Why have applications to carry and possess weapons tripled? In 2021, 3,577 permits have been requested, of which 826 were approved. The introduction in Congress of a bill aimed at easing restrictions on the carrying of weapons, in force in the country since December 2015, reignited controversy. Although the government responded that its policy aims to maintain restrictions and even move towards disarming more citizens, some sectors insist on the need to allow... (GunPolicy.org)

InSight Crime's 2020 Homicide Round-Up

29 January 2021

InSight Crime

While unrest gripped much of Latin America in 2019, it was the coronavirus that took center stage and ripped through the region in 2020, upending everything from commercial trade to the operations of local gangs and transnational criminal organizations. It's too early to tell with any degree of certainty how exactly the pandemic may have impacted levels of violence, but there were notable developments, including significant reductions in El Salvador, Guatemala,...

Unrest gripped much of Latin America and the Caribbean throughout 2019.

World is Far Less Violent: Global Murders Halving in a Decade

7 September 2016

Foreign Affairs (USA)

The world has never been safer than it is right now. Most forms of violence have dropped precipitously over the past few centuries. Although conflict deaths recently spiked (the war in Syria accounts for one third of all war-related killings today), fewer people are dying from warfare than at virtually any time in human history. Terrorist violence also increased over the past two years—especially in six countries the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia—but it still... (GunPolicy.org)

The Latin American Gun Leak

16 January 2015

Los Angeles Times, Opinion

During the 1980s, El Salvador was the single largest recipient of U.S. military hardware and weaponry in the Western Hemisphere. Although the Central American country's civil war ended in 1992, the guns, grenades and bullets linger, as do their murderous effects. In September, a U.S. official from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives estimated that half the weapons available on El Salvador's vibrant black market were made in the United...

Small Arms Trade a 'Dramatic Threat' to Latin America

13 October 2014
