Guns and Murder (by County)

(See the column: Guns, Men, and Murder: The Data. See these tables also: U.S. Counties and Murder and Guns and Murder (by State).)


The top table (in blue) represents the top 101 counties--according to City-Data--when it comes to the “lowest percentage of residents that keep firearms around their homes.” The second table (in blue) represents the top 101 counties--according to City-Data--when it comes to the “highest percentage of residents that keep firearms around their homes.” Due to length and time, I listed only the top two percent (62) in each table. Murder rates are listed below each table.

Lowest percentage of residents that keep firearms around their homes:
