How many guns in the US?
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 know exactly how they define "licensed guns."

None. People are not genetically related to guns.
7 needles are used in a tattoo gun.
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 di…vided by 365 days is only a little over 45 each day, and that includes all types of weapons. In 2006, the number of murders in 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
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 states do not, and there is no federal registration. So, in the vast majority of the U.S. there is no such thing as registration.
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
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 b…e registered in a particular state. And the registration is usually done by the local police department in those states. FFL 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"
1. There are currently 140,000 registered firearms sellers in theUnited States (source: Arming America, Origins of a National GunCulture) The statistic information above shoul…d be explained further.According ATF publication "Firearms Commerce in the United States:Annual Statistical Update 2014", there 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.
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 correc…t however as guns are not required to be registered in all states it is impossible to say how many are owned legally. Guns that are owned illegally are obviously not registered so there is no way to know how many there are.
1. The total of (01) F.F.L.s is 29,167 (01) F.F.L.s Dealers too!
No exact answer, as there is no exact record- a good estimate is about 120 million privately owned handguns in the US.
4-10 million or 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".
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.
Unknown. No published data.
Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
Impossible to answer. No central data base exists.
