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)
There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
There's no real way to know definitively, since most states don't require registration. Some estimates are 80 million.
Accidental each year would be around 1500. But deliberate killing would have to be over 12,000 deaths a year from guns.
In 2011, the latest figure available from the Centers for Disease Control, Accidental discharge 851 Suicide 19,766 Homicide 11,101 Undetermined Intent 222 Total: At least 31940 people died from gun injuries in 2011. Also 258 people were killed during legal intervention, most of them due to …guns. Guns were involved, but were not the primary cause of death: -in 2 fatal accidents. -in 6 homicides. Previous years: 2010 31,328 people 2009 31,177 people 2007 31,224 people 2004 29,569 people (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)
Is it true that Black troops in the Army were not trusted to carry guns and many were used in non-combat labor roles?
Not true for all black troops. Two all-black infantry divisions were formed and several other smaller combat units such as Anti-Tank Destroyer battalions. The 92nd "Buffalo" Infantry Division served in the Italian Campaign for almost 6 months. It is true that a large proportion of Black troops serv…ed in engineering and supply units, where they were used for manual labor. However, in fairness to the military of the time, it should be added that most enlisted personnel serving with engineering and supply units were used for manual labor. That's what such units did. It had nothing to do with race. (MORE)
amazingly unintentional deaths due to firearms in the U.S. ranges anywhere from 500-1000 per year. considering there are 93 guns for every 100 people in the U.S. (not including the military and law enforcement - which would essentially make the ratio 1/1), this is AMAZING. think about that for a mom…ent...350,000,000 guns, and less than 1000 accidental deaths...simply incredible. FYI - intentional killings with firearms is somewhere between 30-40 thousand per year --- Poster above does not give any source for his data. According to Center for Disease Control (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr61/nvsr61_06.pdf) in 2011, there were: - 851 deaths due to accidental discharge of firearms - 38,285 deaths by suicide, 19,766 (51%) of which were by discharge of firearms - 15,953 homicides, 11,101 (69%) of which were committed by discharge of firearms \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n \n\n\n . However, this does not tell the entire story. The vast majority of homicides are career criminals killing other career criminals. Baltimore PD reported in 2007 that 93% of murder suspects, and 91% of murder VICTIMS had felony records. Victims averaged over 13 convictions each. (MORE)
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)
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)
Far less than die at the hands of doctors and drunk drivers. Try the FBI Uniform Crime Report for criminal use of firearms.
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
Homicides involving firearms in the US are around triple the rate of the nearest rival. For comparison, homicide rates of any kind in the US are around double the rates of most other countries - thus the proportion of homicide involving a firearm in the US is a lot higher than comparable countries. …While some rates of violent crime involving the weapons were higher, others were similar - this is not enough to indicate a direct link either way, but from the first part it is fairly obvious that more guns has lead to more people being killed by them.

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)
The general answer to what I think you're asking is, no, but to further expound on that, each state sets its own laws regarding gun carry permits and carrying guns in public. Some states issue carry permits, some states don't require a carry permit to carry a gun, some states and the District of Col…umbia do not issue permits. Some states recognize permits from other states, some don't. See related link for specific information. (MORE)
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)
The answer will depend on your parents and the local laws where you live. Yea man nothin is illeagl if you don't get cought. Just don;t pull it out on some gang members or they will think it is a real one and shoot you down.
Any sort of rifle yes, but it must be out of arms reach and not loaded, and if pulled over by an officer you must tell them where its at and if its loaded or not.
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)
It is impossible to tell exactly. There have never been any surveys to obtain this information. However, relative to the number of women who carry guns this number is probably small. Carrying a gun in a purse offers some distinct disadvantages in comparison to carrying a gun in a holster on a per…son's body. A gun in a purse is harder to get to when it is needed and easier to lose control of. Also, the choice of holsters is much wider than the choice of appropriate purses. (MORE)
A lot of people can own a gun in the U.S. Felons and lunatics can not. There are restrictions on carrying a gun. There are restrictions on concealed weapons. A difference exists between owning and carrying a gun. The police in the US carry guns. In the US we have a different history from the UK. We …fought two wars against the UK. In our Revolutionary War, King George III made it illegal for the Colonists to own guns while he sold them to the Indians. The frontiersmen did not like the Indian massacres. They owned guns and were prepared when the British in Canada and West Florida started selling guns to the Indians in 1810. Vancouver, a British trader, sold guns to the Indians along the Pacific Coast. American settlers needed their own guns. The Indian Wars ended in 1892, Americans never gave up their guns. They needed them when Poncho Villa attacked from Mexico. America has not enjoyed the same internal peace as England. The last foreign attack England had came from Bonnie Prince Charlie. (MORE)
In NZ no, but you are not aloud to shoot ducks and I answered this question cause I'm ten and my IQ is 169
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".
Carrying weapons while in commission of a crime can massively increase the offence, for example from simple burglary to an armed robbery (whether or not the weapon was brandished or the person robbed even knew of its presence). It can also result in an additional charge of carrying weapons illegally… or for an illegal purpose (not the official wording, but that is what you did). Additionally, some states have what's known as Project Exile, where the presence of a weapon during a felony arrest, whether it is used or not, carries with it a minimum sentencing requirement (typically, five years) on top of the sentences for charges filed in relation to whatever the arrest was for.

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.
It depends on which gun it is. Some smaller models holds as few as 6. Some larger models with staggered magazines hold as many as 15 or 16.
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. Added: (in the US) Gun ownership is a Constitutionally protected right, and since no law requires gun owners to register their fir…earms the answer to this question is impossible to determine. There is no way to know this statistic. (MORE)
The United States constitution Gives the right of US citizens to keep and bear arms.
The Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the U.S. guarantees the right to possess (own) and bear (carry) firearms. The consensus, today, is that certain criminal convictions (usually felonies or high level misdemeanors), along with crimes of violence committed with a firearm…, acts of insurrection against the USofA, crimes of domestic violence, et alia - disqualify people who have been so convicted from owning and carrying firearms.

You can carry a concealed handgun in most states except for Illinois and the District of Columbia. Each state has different laws, and some states allow open carry, some do not, and some allow either. Check handgunlaw.us for more information.
More people are killed by firearms in the USA than by motor vehicle accidents (40,000)
Took it from yahoo but - "In 2004 (the most recent year for which data is available), there were 29,569 gun deaths in the U.S: 16,750 suicides (56% of all U.S gun deaths), 11,624 homicides (40% of all U.S gun deaths), 649 unintentional shootings, 311 from legal intervention and 235 from undete…rmined intent (4% of all U.S gun deaths combined). -Numbers obtained from CDC National Center for Health Statistics mortality report online, 2007 But remember, Guns dont shoot by themselves - people shoot them.

Depends on how the gun is carried, and what type of gun. You need to give us some information to get a meaningful answer. Every 18 yr old that goes deer hunting "carries" a gun in their vehicle.
Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
I can only account for some 120,000, combined in several law enforcement agencies and a few not s- law enforcement.. like EPA, NIH, FDA..? but, I know thta HUD allows officers that frequent the 'projects' to carry (and rightfully so). Now the Social Security Adm has ordered 174,000 rounds of .357 S…IG ammunition.. and obviously it isn't for resale... so how many Federal employee CAN carry, with or without arrest authority ? I'm guessing another 15,00-25,000 are allowed to carry weapons. No wonder the government in DC wants to disarm the citizens! We are surrounded by armed Federal employees! And we have no idea WHY they carry and how they are trained. They fear that we will discover who is armed and prepare to defend ourselves. (MORE)
Nobody is exactly sure when the first gun was invented, by the 1400's personal handguns were pretty far spread, how ever it is likely to be around 1500+.
No one has an exact number, since, in most of the US, private sales of firearms between residents of the same state are legal- and there are no world wide numbers. It is ESTIMATED that around 15 million firearms were sold in the US last year- but that is only an estimate.
Postal police officers are armed, but their function is more like that of a security guard. They're generally deployed at or near airports and other large postal distribution terminals.
The standard service rifle of the US Army Rangers is the M4A1 with the SOPMOD kit. Some units have used the FN SCAR-L in the past, but the order for SCAR-Ls to equip the whole of SOCOM was cancelled in 2010.
Most of the places I've checked said that he wore three brace of pistols and since that's two guns to a brace. He would be carrying around into battle roughly six guns. Which despite how it sounds is actually rather smart considering how long it took to load the darn things in the first place.
Other than security contractors (Blackwater/XE, Triple Canopy, Aegis Defence Services, et. al), no. Most of the civilian contractor positions there specifically prohibit carrying arms.
Weapons may vary depending on what mission your are engaged in. Usually, a rifleman is armed with an M-16 with a bayonet attached to it, an M9 Beretta pistol as a secondary weapon, grenades, and a Ka Bar knife.
Every day, gang members kill other gang members even in their gang. They do this if the gang member has not made enough money from selling drugs, or for a reason i dont know about. On average, the gang leader will kill often by knife, a quick silent way to do business, and will kill around 3 times a… month using this tactic. By gun, the murder average has almost tripled from december 12, 2011, to present day. The murder count by gun to be exact, is around 7,345 only in the U.S. Around the world, counting the chinese gang Yakuza, russian mafia, rio drug lords, all of them, the average is 56,261 murders every year by gun.

The first use of a firearm in North America occurred presumably in 1492. There wasn't actually a United States until the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
Toys R Us offers a large selection of Nerf guns. Toys R Us carries the most varieties of Nerf guns among all other retailers. Toys R Us also stocks plenty of ammunition for the Nerf guns that they carry.
Despite belief to the contrary, in MOST of the US, there is no requirement to register ordinary guns.
Since there is no requirement in the US for an official gun register to be kept, most states do not carry such a register.It is estimated there are between 270 million and 310 million guns held by civilians in the United States.
No reciprocity, to safely assume. It is incredibly hard for its owncitizens to obtain a firearm, much less a carry permit.
No exact record, since there is no requirement to register guns in MOST of the US. One estimate is 312 million owned by ordinary people.There are an estimated 200 million legal guns in the United States.
