How many gun owners are there in us?
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.

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 al…l American households (total US population is 294 million) have at least one gun owner. Numbers vary, but estimates are 70-80 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.
According to the FBI, between 1.6 to 3% According to Dr. Gary Kleck, criminologist at Florida StateUniversity in Tallahassee and author of "Point Blank: Guns andViolence in A…merica," a book used by many in the gun debate,800,000-2,500,000 crimes are stopped by guns each year. The numbersare from different studies. Interesting Statistics: There were over 19,000 deaths by accidental drug overdose in 2004.The majority of these deaths were from prescription drugs, notillegal drugs. Banning prescription drugs makes as much sense asbanning guns. Regarding accidental shooting deaths per year, that number is inthe 14,000-17,000 range. Over 100,000,000 guns are owned inAmerica.
Roughly 80 million as per 2010 BATFE statistical analysis
The highest estimate of private firearms in Texas is a little over 2 times the then state population of 17 million.
The question can't be answered. National registration is not required.
IIRC, they mention it on their web site.
Gun owners aren't "registered" like cars. One estimate is that there are @ 4 million or so gun owners.
There is no one source you can go to for this answer.
I cant give you statistics,but I can tell you that as a Collector of Vintage Firearms,I dont shoot my collectors items.That would be like using my comic book collection to lig…ht my fireplace.I do own some guns for competition and some for hunting,while the old Springfields,Enfields,Mausers,Mosins,Winchesters,and Colts stay in the safe.
A couple of million
Approx. 27% of US gun owners hunt.
about 22.5 percent of the population in the State of California own guns. Second highest in the U.S.
nobody actually knows because people by them illegally or from a different countries Kmart use to sell bullets but there was a trade thing where if you gave your gun in you wo…uld get money so the numbers have decreased a lot.
No way to answer, since we do not know exactly how many gun owners (male and femal) there are. FWIW, both of my daughters, one granddaughter, and my stepmother own guns.
300 million give or take a few hundred thousand.
