Steven Broad (firstname.lastname@example.org), a mathematics faculty member at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN, collected this data in 2012 after the mass shooting in Aurora, CO, to help inform discussions about gun control. He used the web site http://www.guncite.com/gun_control_gcgvinco.html, which contains data about homicides from a number of countries, as his source of information to compile this data set for 38 countries. That web site references many other sources from which its data were obtained. There is no assumption that the 38 countries are selected at random, and www.guncite.com says that gun-related information tends to be unreliable.
Additional data on guns per 100 population in 2014 were added by Anne Anderson from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_of_guns_per_capita_by_country.
