How many registered guns are handguns in the US?
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.

None of my guns are registered in Ohio, but I don't live or visit there, so there is no penalty at all.
The number of guns owned by civilians in the United States is estimated to be between 238 million and 276 million. There is no gun registration on the Federal level, except for machine guns. There is no registration on the state level in the majority of the states for any guns. This means that m…ost of these are not registered. (MORE)
It appears that Ohio does not have gun registration, so the answer is, you don't. You should verify that with a reputable local gunshop.
It depends on where you are. In most states, you don't register handguns. If you live in a state where it is required (it's only required in 5 or 6 states), check with your local police department.
Since most states don't require registration, and there is no federal law requiring registration, most of the handguns in the U.S. are unregistered. "Unregistered" is a misleading term. It implies that a person has failed to do something that is required.
Go to the nearest police station. Actually, the answer is, you don't. The state of Florida does not require handgun registration.
It depends on where you are. In the majority of U.S. states, you don't have to register a handgun.
The only guns that are registered with the federal government are those that fall under the National FIrearms Act (NFA). For example machine guns, silencers, short barrel rifles/shotguns etc. Otherwise check state statutes or local ordinances.
Gun owners aren't "registered" like cars. One estimate is that there are @ 4 million or so gun owners.
It think so but still you should anyway so you dont get into any legal trouble.. The answer is, it depends on where you are. In the U.S. most states do not require any type of registration, however, depending on what you mean by "build" you may need a firearms manufacturers license to be legal.
That depends entirely on the state, county, and city laws in your area. In general, if the gun is not required to be registered by your state or city, the gun range will not require registration. Police ranges in some areas may get overy intrusive, if given a chance.. Find out the laws in your area… before you go to the range. (MORE)
No. Depending on where you are, you probably don't have to register it. Handgun registration, contrary to popular belief, is not required in most U.S. states. If you are unsure, check with the local police department.
The answer is in two parts:. 1. In the U.S. you must be 21 to purchase or own a handgun.. 2. In most states, you do not have to register a handgun. Only 4 or 5 states require it, so you don't have to unless you live in one of those states. If you're not sure about your state law, check with a loca…l reputable gun shop and they can tell you.

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)
No, depending on how the term is used. Registration means just that. Licensing can mean being licensed to carry a handgun. In most states, no registration is required, even with a license to carry.

To answer that question would require someone to contact all the states,territories and possesions of the US. AFAIK, it has never been done. Your task is further complicated by the fact that in MOST states, there is NO requirement to "register" a firearm. No matter what you see on TV. About 5…% of mine...And its gonna stay that way...

Depends on your state of Residence. I recommend you contact your local law enforcement or a lawyer that is familiar with the gun laws in your locality for information.
I'm fairly sure you are required by law to register handguns in California. I believe you register them through the local sheriff's department.

The short answer is, you don't. There is no gun registration in Tennessee. The longer answer is, only a few U.S. states require registration, and there is no national registration. The term "gun registration" may be the single most overused term ever.

If you buy a gun from an individual, the only requirement legally is for you to have no reason to believe either party is a prohibited person. (MORE)
Only Durham registers its handguns to residents in the city (It is believed that registrations violate the NC constitution but the state leaves Durham alone).

None. They all died because another person didn't want them to live. The instrument used is immaterial. Dead because someone used a bat instead of a firearm is still dead. You might as well ask how many people died by drowning in a pool.
No. You can go to a shooting range and shoot a gun without a concealed permit, however, you may be required to have some other type of paperwork.

Oregon doesn't have registration of Title 1 (i.e., "normal") firearms - only NFA items must be registered. You can own as many as you can afford.
