How many murders in US by guns?
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 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

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)
40, on average. Murder is the unlawful intentional taking of a human life byanother human. It doesn't include accidents, self defense, orsuicide. According to data made available by the FBI, In 2011, an estimated14,612 persons were murdered in the United States. (This is themost recent data availab…le at the time of this writing). (MORE)
There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
In the past 6 years almost 100,000 people have been murdered in the US.. This averages 16,000 per year.
In 2008 there were about 14,180 according to FBI statistics. However, it should be noted that some jurisdictions don't report to the FBI, and many felony manslaughters aren't tallied as "murders" in these DOJ reports. In the 2000's the US had lower homicide rates than any decade since the 1950's. Ra…tes per/100,000 including homicides, justifiable homicides, terrorism deaths, and executions are... 2008= 6.0 2007= 6.2 2006= 6.4 2005= 6.3 2004= 6.1 2003= 6.0 2002= 6.0 2001= 7.1 2000= 5.9 http://www.violentdeathproject.com/ (MORE)
In 2007, around 70 percent of homicides were committed with afirearm in the Unites States. Around 100 thousand lives are claimedevery year because of gun violence.
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)

About 15,000 murders occur in the United States each year. However,this number may vary depending on the year. In 2013, 14,827 peoplewere murdered in the United States.
96,002,154,100,123 bumble bees ate a llama. According to the FBI, the total number of murders in 2007 was 16,929, however, that is the total number of murders, including all weapons, so the answer is, less than 16,929.
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.

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.

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.

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)

No exact answer, as there is no exact record- a good estimate is about 120 million privately owned handguns in the US.
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".
Several sources around the Internet report that the homicide rate in 1910 was 4.6 per 100,000. (Google search 1910 homicide rate). The U.S. census was conducted in 1910 and reported a U.S. population of 92,228,496. Simple multiplication reveals an answer of 4,241.
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.
California, despite having very stringent guns laws. In 2007, California had 2260 murders. On a National average, 70.3% of murders involved a firearm. For some additional reading, try the FBI crime report: http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius_04/offenses_reported/violent_crime/murder.html
As strange as it sounds, the mail seems to be a good way to commitcrimes and remain un-named. The most well known is probably theUnibomber, Ted Kaczynski, but about a handful of cases occur yearlywhere bombs, poisons, or other items are sent through the mail. In the 19th century, lesser known mail m…urder occurred in the year1898 in New York City. Harry Cornish, sports director of New York'sexclusive Knickerbocker Athletic Club, received a toothpick holderand a bottle of some kind of liquid. After he brought them home,his aunt drank some of the liquid, and died the next day fromcyanide poisoning. Two months earlier, another member of theKnickerbocker Club had died after receiving some liquid in themail. Police thought it was too much of a coincidence, and it was.The guilty party was a Mr. Roland Molineux, a rival of the firstvictim. He was convicted and sentenced to death. The verdict wasset aside on appeal and he was given another trial. He wasacquitted the second time around, and wrote a book about life inprison. But he later contracted syphilis, was divorced by his wife,and died in a lunatic asylum on November 2, 1917. In 2001, three letters postmarked September 18, and two lettersdated October 9 were sent to NBC News, ABC News, and The New YorkPost, and to US Senators Patrick Leahy and Tom Daschle inWashington, DC. When opened, the letters were found to containcryptic warnings and small amounts of cultured anthrax spores. A letter was also sent to the tabloid The Sun in Boca Raton,FL and to an aide at CBS News. Persons at these locations were alsoinfected by anthrax. The FBI estimates that a total of five peopledied as a result of these letters and seventeen people weresickened. Not all of the deaths or infections were limited to theagencies that received the letters. Two postal workers in aWashington facility later died, and others believed to have handledcontaminated mail were also infected, two fatally. To date, many theories have been advanced, none conclusive. Agerm-lab employee was suspected, and later committed suicide. Noone was ever indicted or arrested. On February 19, 2010, the Dept.of Justice and the FBI issued a statement that they were officiallyclosing the investigation, saying that "(the) investigation foundthat the late Dr. Bruce Ivins acted alone in planning and executingthese attacks." Dr. Ivins had been their chief suspect prior to hissuicide. There are many who believe that the investigation wasbotched or evidence covered up, and some have their own theoriesabout how and why the crime was committed. (MORE)

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.

Neither one. Both are inanimate objects, which are entirely incapable of making a decision to kill.

Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
That's terrible! Why would you ask that? A lot of children have been murdered in the U.S., though. Out of 100,000, about 1.8 children under 14 is murdered. From 14-17 years old, the number ascends to 6.4 per. 100,000. Source: FBI

How many more mass murders will there be before people get it that religion is the problem and not guns?
A: It does not matter whether mass murderers are motivated by religion or not. Without a gun, they could not kill people so easily. Other countries get by with low rates of gun ownership, especially high powered asault weapons, and they are distinguished by low rates of mass murder. The logic is th…ere: moderate religious extremism if you think that is a problem, but more importantly get rid of the guns. (MORE)
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.

There is no way to give an exact answers to that- since it cannot be predicted that an assault will end in murder. One researcher claims Defensive Gun Use (DGU) at 2 million times a year in the US. Another researcher claims it is no more than 100,000 times a year. Most researchers feel a number ar…ound 370,000 times a year is more accurate. In the debate on prohibiting private ownership of guns, it should be considered that even the very low estimates are still a LOT of uses to defend against unlawful attack- and that cannot simply be ignored.
