Answer . According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, there were about 215 million privately owned guns in 1999. The NRA estimates that half of all American households (total US population is 294 million) have at least one gun owner. Numbers vary, but estimates are 70-8…0 million gun owners with 200-250 million guns. There is no way to give a definitive answer. There are millions of guns in the U.S. Some estimates say 80 million households have guns, but since there is no national registration, there is no real way to know. (MORE)
Who do you contact if you married an illegal alien but were used for a green card and you brought his daughter to the US and you have not seen them since but she has signed your name on documents?
Answer . First of all, how did an illegal obtain a green card?\nSecond, if you have not seen him or his daughter and she has forged your name on documents, contact the police and the INS. They will have his Alien Registration #,and should have his current address. If you have his Social Security …#, then give that to the police also.\nGood Luck (MORE)
Answer . I'm no gun expert, but I think in some states they are legal. As for which ones, you'll have to check. It's just you'll have to jump through a lot of hoops if you want to get an automatic weapon into the country, so always try to buy in the US.. Fully automatic guns are legal in MOST st…ates. To purchase one legally, you have to go through a class 3 dealer, fill out a bunch of paperwork, pay a $200 tax, and wait for an approval from the BATF. It normally takes several months, and most fully automatic guns are pretty expensive. (MORE)
Can a minor child who was brought to the US illegally gain legal status if he marries a US citizen once he is of legal age?
Answer . \nPerhaps, it depends upon the foreign national's individual circumstances.\n. \nHowever, marriage to a US citizen does not automatically guarantee permanent resident status nor citizenship.\n. \nU.S. Immigration Support, http://www.usimmigrationsupport.org\n. \nUnited States Citizen…ship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov (MORE)
There are said to be anywhere between 12 to 20 million illegal immigrants in the United States. Actually there are 6million to 8million with the latest count on Feb. 10th 2011
There has never been a survey created for this question, most likely because someone would not be willing to admit they have an "Illegal gun". Additionally, whenever someone is discovered to possess a gun illegally, it usually gets taken from them, and they no longer have it..
There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
At the last NGC ( National Gun Census) in April 2007, it was recorded that, on average, there is about 178,000,000 lisenced firearms in the USA, although it is believed there is a further 50% that are unlisenced.. No license is required to own a gun in most states, so it would be interesting to kno…w exactly how they define "licensed guns." (MORE)
Yes, and if a minor is to even look at one, they will be beheaded by the kings army.
hundreds every day!!!. Sigh. More BS hype. According to the FBI, in 2005, there were about 16,700 murders in the U.S. This includes murders by all types of weapons. 16,692 divided by 365 days is only a little over 45 each day, and that includes all types of weapons. In 2006, the number of murders i…n the U.S. was just over 17,000. In 2007, it was a little under 17,000. That is NOWHERE NEAR "hundreds every day," and that includes murders from all types of weapons. People should post facts that can be verfied, not crap that they hear. besides i like cheeeeeze (MORE)
In most U.S. states, no, but you don't have any way to enforce traffic laws or write speeding tickets.
It varies depending on whether the charge is state or federal, the type of firearm and if it was used in the commisison of a crime. 2-10 years.
This question continues to come up, with great regularity. In most U.S. states, there is no registration, regardless of what anybody tells you. "Register you gun" is something people say because they have heard it on TV. There are 3 or 4 states that require registration, but the other 46 or 47 state…s do not, and there is no federal registration. So, in the vast majority of the U.S. there is no such thing as registration. (MORE)
There are a lot of drugs in the US. Count how many sewage pipes are in the US. That's how many illegal drugs are in the US.
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
There are no firm figures but the latest figures quoted in the media mention figures ranging from 10 to 12 Million persons.
Unless stolen before making it to a retailer, they all are when bought. --- Firearms are not registered when sold by retailers (FFL dealers) unless they are required to be registered in a particular state. And the registration is usually done by the local police department in those states. F…FL dealers record the buyer's information from form 4473 in their "bound book" and then they are obligated to keep these records for as long as they remain in business and keep their federal firearms license renewed. Gues it all depends on what the OP meant by "registered" (MORE)
1. There are currently 140,000 registered firearms sellers in theUnited States (source: Arming America, Origins of a National GunCulture) The statistic information above should be explained further.According ATF publication "Firearms Commerce in the United States:Annual Statistical Update 2014", the…re were a total of 139,244Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) in fiscal year 2013. This numberhas been steadily climbing since 1996. However, the number oflicensees peaked in 1992 with 284,117. Furthermore, the term "seller" is not accurate. The number citedincludes licensees who are not considered "sellers" of firearms;collectors of firearms and manufacturers of ammunition. The statewith the largest number of FFLs is Texas, with about 10,500 FFLs asof fiscal year 2013. (MORE)
A lot probably, scientist can test an entire sewage system now, total up the counts for each sewage system, and that is at least how many illegal drugs are in the U.S.
The .50 caliber rifle has been banned from the battlefields as one shot could take a head clean off In the USA gun laws can vary from State to State so the list of legal/illegal guns may change from one area to the next Note: The use of 50 caliber sniper rifles and 50 caliber machine guns have… not been banned on the battlefields, they have been in use for decades and are currently still in use in today's armed forces. The military currently uses millimeters as per the metric system to describe the size of the rounds used in its' weapons rather than the term Caliber which was based on 1 inch measurement.. So A 7.62mm round as used in the M16 is a .30 caliber round and A 12.7mm is a .50 caliber round such as is used in the M2HB machine gun as is being used in Iraq/Afghanistan today by US armed forces..

None. When made, 99.9% are legal, no matter where made. Just because it's against the law for YOU to own it doesn't make the weapon illegal. Technically the above is correct however as guns are not required to be registered in all states it is impossible to say how many are owned legally. Guns th…at are owned illegally are obviously not registered so there is no way to know how many there are. (MORE)
15 to 20 million; as of 2005, 57% were from Mexico , 24% were from Lantin America countries, 9% were from Asia, 6% were from Europe, and 4% were from the rest of the world.
In North America Nerf guns can USUALLY be bought at stores like Wal mart, toys r us, and target.
Almost any animal not native here has been illegally imported at least once. Tigers, lions, elephants and rhinos are some examples. Most are brought here for canned meat hunts, where people house these animals and then kill them and cut off their heads and use them as trophies on their walls. It is …actually legal in most states.

No exact answer, as there is no exact record- a good estimate is about 120 million privately owned handguns in the US.
None that were made by a legitimate manufacturer. No way to tell how many individuals broke the law and made one that didn't meet mandated requirements.
1n 1994 @ 246K people had FFL's. Thanks to former President, Bill Clinton and the Congress of that era there are now less than 50k people with FFL's. Not all of those ran a "store".
In MOST of the US, there is no requirement to license or register guns. If they are not registered, there is no way to know how many there are. in 2004, it was estimated that private citizens in the US owned 192 million firearms- the number is higher now.
My kid's father was brought into the us illegally as a child 20yrs ago how can we get him legalized in the us?
Seems like he has a chance through family based. Find out what is his immediate family status. Are his parents permanent residents?U.S naturalized citizens? Are you a U.S.citizen? Which ever way he goes,he will eventually have to leave the U.S. for a matter of 1-10 years,for his visa process,which w…ill take place at the American Embassy,from his native hometown. (MORE)
There were a number of laws passed during the slavery years which prohibited slaves from owning guns. Black Codes passed in the former Confederate states after the Civil War required licensing for blacks to obtain firearms, which was difficult to obtain. After the Civil Rights Act of 1866 was passed… by Congress, Alabama was the first state to specifically forbid blacks to own firearms, with a number of former Confederate states soon following suit. The northern states weren't really much better. After the trial of Ossian Sweet in Detroit, Michigan passed the Public Acts of 1927, which established "gun boards" to determine who could or could not own a firearm in the state of Michigan. It was actually a response to political pressure from the Ku Klux Klan, who wanted these boards established to ensure blacks in Michigan could not obtain firearms. (MORE)
It depends on a couple of factors. One, it depends on where you are (there are some places where you cannot legally own or possess a gun). Two, it depends on what you're using it for. If you are in the United States, it's legal to own guns in every state (although some states have restrictions that… others don't, and a couple of cities have some restrictions). Otherwise, it is perfectly legal to use a gun for a legal purpose, such as hunting, target shooting, or self-defense. Of course, it is not legal to use a gun for an illegal purpose, and it is illegal to possess a gun during a crime, even if you otherwise legally possess the gun. (MORE)
Before this question can be addressed you must 1st define what exactly you deem to be an *illegal gun*.
Many homes have guns, though mostly in rural areas. There are also a number of people who posess guns illegaly as well as those who have a legal contract to own one. Added: (in the US) Gun ownership is a Constitutionally protected right, and since no law requires gun owners to register their fir…earms the answer to this question is impossible to determine. There is no way to know this statistic. (MORE)
No, if you are an American, its your right to bear arms, as long as you're not a felon. US Constitution's 2nd Amendment says: A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Laws on firearms ownership, possession, and use vary throughout different jurisdictions. Without knowing where you had in mind with this question, it's impossible to say. Several countries do permit citizens to own firearms, with conditions and restrictions varying between different countries. In th…e US, the laws even vary between states, although firearms ownership is legal in all of them. (MORE)
In mst cases, no, it is not- but it will depend on where your garden is located, and what you are doing with the BB gun.
More people are killed by firearms in the USA than by motor vehicle accidents (40,000)
Guns that are obtained illegally are not subject to recordkeeping, so there is no reliable data.
Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
Well they should not be judged very harshly because our country made it out of a very tough place we were able to make the economy rise dramatically. we were now able to make our own money pull out of debts, and although it did effect England somewhat because it was truly their idea it helped both c…ountries.

Define what is meant by an "illegal" gun. If by 'illegal' you mean one that ownership is forbidden to you by federal law (e.g.: filed-off serial number - converted to full automatic - etc), your case would not be prosecuted by the state - you could be prosecuted by the US Attorney. If you mean tha…t you have a gun that your state law prohibits you from possessing, you would probably appear in the juvenile court of your local jurisdiction. (MORE)
When it comes to immigration, US is the most preferred destination. This is because the country offers a secure life, job and a better place to live in. Illegal alien problem is due to the fact that many people (economically down) from Mexico, Canada cross the borders with the hope of a better futur…e in the US. Either they are ignorant of the complex immigration process or they are not bothered to enter legally. (MORE)
Simple answer, no. However, it is slightly more complicated. Obviously felons can not own/possess firearms (of any kind). Also the specific requirements for owning an automatic weapon vary from state to state. Federal law does not prohibit ownership, but it does regulate. With a clean background …and disposable income, most anyone in this county can do anything, including owning an automatic weapon. Look into purchasing a federal permit (FFA) typically reserved for dealers and collectors, or just move to Texas. (MORE)
none you have to be a legal citizen to vote. if you didnt have to be legal there would be hundreds of thousands of extra voters.
We do not know an exact number, since there is no licensing of gun owners on a national basis. It is estimated that roughly 1/3rd of all households in the US own at least 1 firearm. The percentage will very sharply by location. New York City- very rare. Rural Tennessee, very common.
No one answer, since there is no one law in all places. In general, in most areas, you may not bird hunt with a rifle, shotguns used for birds may only hold 3 shells, and small rifles (like a .22) cannot be used for big game (deer, bear, etc).
No exact record, since there is no requirement to register guns in MOST of the US. One estimate is 312 million owned by ordinary people.There are an estimated 200 million legal guns in the United States.
As of 2012, there were 51,438 retail gun stores, and 7,356 pawn shops with a gun dealer's license. There are about 62,000 collectors with a Federal Firearms license.
If you were brought to the US illegally as a child, it may bepossible to get a green card. You will need to contact your localimmigration office for more information.
In general, if you are a law-abiding citizen over age 21, you can own a firearm. There are certain local exceptions such as New York City, Washington, D.C. and Chicago, but even these are being litigated. Don't do anything stupid with it. If you plan to purchase a gun, I recommend that you take a…n NRA-certified safety course (you can find those through your local firearms dealer, sporting goods store, or shooting range) and try several models. Any decent firearms dealer will ask you why you want a gun, and what you plan to use it for; this is so that he can suggest the best gun for your purposes. (MORE)
