Private security firms in Latin America are the most armed with the largest weapons arsenals in that category of security industry companies worldwide, a new survey report said.

An added problem was that many of the weapons carried by employees of private security firms weren’t registered under companies’ names.

Instead, the weapons had private registrations that made the task of evaluating the firms’ arsenals more difficult, said an advance research note in the forthcoming Small Arms Survey 2011, released in Geneva, Switzerland.
