Google Just Produced a MAD Visualization
Mapping Arms Data, that is. It visualizes the imports and exports of small arms, light weapons, and ammunition across 250 states and territories between 1992 and 2010. Specifically:
• Military weapons include artillery, mortars, machine guns (sub, light, and heavy), assault rifles, combat shotguns, and machine pistols.
• Civilian arms consist of pistols, revolvers, sporting shotguns, sporting rifles (anything not rated as a military item including fully automatic weaponry).
• Ammunition includes shotgun shells and small caliber ammo (anything below 14.5mm which isn’t fired from a shotgun).
