How many guns are smuggled into the US?
Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
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)
It's only illegal if you get caught, try putting them into a pill pot then ram them into a condom then ram that up your rectum (if your a woman the vagina is a lot more effective as it is easier to insert and you can walk more comfortably)
Smuggling is bringing goods into a country illegally. It may be because the goods are illegal, such as drugs or weapons, or it may be to avoid high taxes. It can also avoid inspections and reported income which means the goods may not meet standards, or they won't have to pay income tax on the incom…e. (MORE)

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)

FOCUS ON CHILDREN KAREN AND SCOTT BANKS SMUGGLED WAY TOO MANY CHILDREN INTO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. .
The drugs most commonly smuggled into America include:. Marijuana (less and less, competing with the American crop) . Heroin . Cocaine and derrivatives . Hashish (quite rare and easy to detect, bulky). . The focus has moved from single-man transports ("mules") over to larger shipments -- more …than a man could carry in an airplane -- al though this does remain a means of completing small transports.. Primary routes by sea and air are:. From Central and South America up to the Southeast Coast of America (sometimes via ports in the carribean). . From Central and South America to the Gulf Coast. . From Central and South America to the Southwest coast of California. The waters grow less navigable north of Point Conception, so transport lessens from that point north. . From Asia into the West Coast. . From Asia to Europe (often for refining), and from there to the Atlantic NorthEast (sea route usually). . Individual yachts have run from the Golden Triangle area into the Pacific Coast of America, but piracy in the South China Sea has reduced this traffic. . Land routes include:. From Central and South America into Mexico (the Columbain Cartels have retreated from the transport business and are focusing solely on production. Mexican cartels have been awarded the rights to transportation.) . From Mexico into Texas, New Mexico and Southern California. . Cargo containers, small cargo packets and trucks are now the container of choice, instead of the old all-a-man-can-carry method, although Cash Mules carrying currency still exist. Air and sea interdiction in the Atlantic Southeast and Gulf COast regions have slowed illicit air and sea transport significantly.. On the other hand, alleged complicity on the part of the Mexican Government up to at least the Federale level has allowed for armed convoys to traverse Mexico, reputedly under Army or Police escort, all the way to the border, where the load is trnasferred to a variety of heacy-carry vehicles with permits that traverse the border.

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)
A total of 3869 gun murders happened in the US in 2007, 612 of which happened in Detroit and Baltimore.
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)
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
Gun owners aren't "registered" like cars. One estimate is that there are @ 4 million or so gun owners.
To smuggle is to bring a person/in legal contraband into another country/ state/ city. If you are caught, you can be charged with smuggling and/ or inlegal contraband.
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)
Approximately 80 million people in 52 million households own 260 million firearms. Unfortunately, only about 4 million are actively supporting the right to bear arms as members of the NRA. If you are one of the other 76 million, please join us.

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)
Handguns were used in the first world war extensively because they were easier to wield in trench warfare. Since then they have been primarily issued to troops who for confined space reasons would have trouble carrying a rifle. For example Armored crewmen, transport drivers, clerical personnel. Su…bmachineguns are also commonly issued in many armies for these reasons. (MORE)
That is a very difficult question to answer for a couple of reason. Only a few states require handgun registration, and there is no federal gun registration. In the few states that do require handgun registration, the information is not generally available to the public.
The question can't be answered unless you provide the age range you mean when you say "kids".
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)
You need to talk to a lawyer with the specifics of your situation. Could range from a fine to multiple years in federal prison and fines.
No exact answer, as there is no exact record- a good estimate is about 120 million privately owned handguns in the US.
There are really no firm numbers to answer this question- but it would be several millions of people. They would include the farmer that keeps a shotgun for protection of his livestock from wild animals, the merchant that keeps a handgun for protection from an armed robbery, and the private citizen …that keeps a firearm for personal defense from a mugger. This does not include law enforcement officers, military, or private security staff, like the guard at the bank, or the driver of the armored car that carries money from a business to the bank. There are estimates that firearms are used for defense by private citizens in the US several million times each year. (MORE)
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".
No real statistics available on this. It's not a thing where they're going to publish yearly stats. There have been instances of shipping containers seized in the port of Los Angeles which had been loaded up with automatic weaponry, hand grenades, and even RPGs from China. NORINCO reps claim they we…re stolen from the factories and earmarked for gangs in the US. Conspiracy theorists claim that they're prepositioning stocks of weapons for an invasion of the US. It's a little difficult (for me, personally) to take either claim very seriously. (MORE)

It is possible, more likely instead of making laudanum from opium,criminal would make heroin. Kilogram for kilogram, heroin has moreprofit margin than laudanum. I'm sure that people entering the US from countries where laudanumis available ACCIDENTLY bring it into the US illegally.

About 900 thousand illegal imiigrants smuggle drugs ointo the u.s. Since absolutely no one knows how many illegal immigrants actually enter, and then stay, in the U.S. no one can ever know.
There are two meanings to duty: It was his duty (responsibility) to stop the smuggling and collect the duty (taxes)
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.
