Firearm Ownership In The United States [PDF] [PNG]  

Map uploaded on September 22, 2015.

Lately there has been a lot of people making dot-density maps up, with one dot representing a person or a series of people. I thought those maps were kind of interesting, so I decided to play with QGIS and see what I could make. I found a website that offered an estimate of what percentage of a state's residents own firearms and multiplied it against population. As I figured it would make too many dots to do one dot per gun owner, I made a map of one dot per 1,000 gun owners in each state -- giving people a relative density of gun ownership in each state.
