There are thousands of deaths each year in America sue to a gunrelated incident. An estimated number of 20 percent of deaths arerelated to guns.
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. ( Full Answer )

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 ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )

Look for the Injury Mortality Report that is part of the WISQAR…S data system. ( Full Answer )

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" ( Full Answer )
This is an unanswerable question. There is no way to count "deaths that could have been prevented," let alone deaths that could have been prevented by an indirect correlate.
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. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
That information is not in any one document. You would have to check the CDC, FBI Uniform Crime Report, query all the countries of the world for criminal, military, accidental and suicides,etc... And after all that, you would still not really know because not all deaths are reported.

There is no way to know this statistic. ( Full Answer )
The CDC puts out a table with causes of death listed. Gun deaths are not lumped together, but are spread out in different categories. See related links below and look at tables 10 and 11. For example: Accidental discharge of firearms: 642 deaths in 2006 Intentional self-harm(suicide) by disch…arge of firearms.: 16,883 Assault(homicide)by discharge of firearms.: 12,791 Discharge of firearms, undetermined intent.: 220 If you count all of these and If I didn't miss any categories, there were 30,536 gun-related deaths in 2006. This is out of 2,426,264 deaths in 2006 for all causes. So about 1.3% of deaths that year were gun related. ( Full Answer )
Depends on how you define "youth deaths". There is one group putting forward a number that exceeds the total deaths of ALL children from all causes- seems they consider anyone 25 and younger a child, and have included things like a 22 year old shot by the police during a robbery. If you check the …FBI crime report, it may have some more accurate data than what is being given out in the media. ( Full Answer )

These were trials by a military court, and execution was carried out with the standard US Army M1 Garand rifle. ( Full Answer )
