Guns per 100 residents: 36.4 (Small Arms Survey keeps statistics for the entire island, though the majority are thought to be on the Greek side.)
The culture: Incredibly, with a population of only 870,000, Cyprus was named the world's second-largest importer of small arms after the United States by Small Arms Survey in 2005. The authors write,"This recurrent peculiarity is the consequence of an opaque transit trade."
But the arms trade, for the most part, doesn't factor into civilian ownership. There are only about 104,000 registered guns in Cyprus, nearly all of them hunting rifles. Like the Balkans, Cyprus's long history of internal conflict has left it with large weapons stockpiles in private hands, though many have been destroyed through international efforts. There are some concerns about growing organized crime on the island, but there are still fewer than 10 gun-related homicides per year.
