How many people in the US own a gun?
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.

Not nearly enough.
The most recent study, from '94, showed 25% of adults in the U.S. own guns. That's about 54,450 million citizens! Numbers for the whole world are impossible. (courtesy of kgba…nswer.com)
@ 25% of the total population.
90% of America owns a gun 30% of the people owning a revolvers 16% owning automatics and the rest shotguns and or rifles. No exact answer is possible, since there is no natio…nal requirement for registration of firearms, and MOST states have no such requirement. In the Gallup Poll conducted in 2004, the rate of gun ownership was about 3 of every 10 American adults. That is about 92,771,000 people. There are other surveys with other numbers, however, they are somewhat suspect, since they seek to advance a political agenda.
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
pretty much alot of people worldwide own airsoft guns, think about it this way, 1 of of every 6 person in the united states owns an airsoft gun i don't know about Europe becau…se i don't live there>
No way to know.
The last published data on this is by the National Safety Council (USA) in 2005; in that year a total of 500 people were killed by accidental firearms usage in the USA (This i…ncluded some suicides) - in perspective 16,200 from poison, 900 people died from drowning inside their home and the only lower number was 400 people by exposure (Heat or Cold).
There is no source of exact information. Best estimate is about 120 million people.
Less than die by driving drunk.
There's not an exact number or anything but we can work out who owned a gun... Farm owners, land lords/ owners and crininals would ave had guns with them parciticly all the …time! not helpful? Sorry!

Since there is, by law, no general registration of firearms in the USA - there are only estimates, and they range from a low of 76 million to a high of over 120 million gun ow…ners. Current surveys (2010 and later) put the percentage of households that had a gun in them in the low 40s (40-45%) and the number of adults who said they personally owned a gun in the low 30s (30-34%). Given that roughly 75% of the population is an adult, that means that there are about 225 million adults, and, thus, between 67 and 77 million adults who own a gun. Note that the number of people owning guns (both as a percentage and in absolute numbers) has been slowly falling for the past 30 years. The total number of guns owned by an individual who has at least one gun, however, has skyrocketted.
You will have to find the industry stats for each year to get a answer on how many guns were sold. It won't be the answer you want because one person can buy more than one gun… in a given time period and there is no accirate way to capture that data.
