I'm an American guy living expat fashion in the Philippines where the private ownership & possession of firearms is outlawed.
The largest of the costs of business overhead is hired armed guards at the doors and Federal Police in combat-gear with short-shotguns & assault rifles are a common sight at shopping malls, parking lots, city intersections & public events.
And, for what it's worth to mention it, neglect or refusal to Stand during the National Anthem is a Crime for-witch it's not unheard of for people to actually get Arrested, fined & even Jailed!
Nonetheless, even in This particular Constitutional Republic patterned after the American's they still have their share of Murders, armed-robberies, home-invasions, and a regular occurrence is the settlement of personal-disputes by contracting a drive-by shooting from the back of a scooter-cycle in broad-daylight for no-more the cost of a good bottle of liquor or a badly-prepared chicken-dinner.
Especially in the suburbs & providential countryside where communities can't even afford a fire-station much-less a police-force that isn't as corrupt as the criminal element.
And, since most Americans wouldn't even be able find the Philippines on a map & couldn't care less, it's easy to presume that you wouldn't know anything about the local Islamic Militant problem since the Media doesn't exactly consider it as important as the American President's hair-color & what he may have payed for the digression of an extramarital sex-partner.
Be careful what you wish for Merakana!!
Since rainbow-colors illuminated the White House & Vagina-hats became an international Punchline, you can be sure the Rest of the world couldn't care-less how many people get Shot in America either.
