 A new study tracking gun-related deaths found that just six countries, all located in the Americas, accounted for more than half of all firearm deaths worldwide in 2016.

The lamentable list was topped by Brazil with 43,200 gun deaths in 2016, followed by the United States, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Guatemala.

Taken together, those six nations were home to 50.5 percent of global firearm-related fatalities in 2016, a count that includes gun deaths from homicide, suicide and accidents, not war or terrorism.

Brazil: 43,200 deaths

United States: 37,200 deaths

India: 26,500

Mexico: 15,400

Colombia: 13,300

Venezuela: 12,800

Philippines: 8,020

Guatemala: 5,090

Russia: 4,380

Afghanistan: 4,050
