How many guns in the US?
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 know exactly how they define "licensed guns."

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. ( Full Answer )
There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
If you mean how many murders were there, the FBI shows 16,740murders in 2005, but that includes murders by all types of weapons,not just guns.
there has been 35,000 people killed and 100,000 injured by guns in 2006. there has been 35,000 people killed and 100,000 injured by guns in 2006
Try the FBI Uniform Crime Report for criminal activity and the CDC for the rest. 1 . Check out the FBI website and look at the Uniform Crime Report.
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 )
A total of 3869 gun murders happened in the US in 2007, 612 of which happened in Detroit and Baltimore.
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 )
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.
Gun owners aren't "registered" like cars. One estimate is that there are @ 4 million or so gun owners.
There's no real way to know, because many people have defended themselves with a gun but didn't have to shoot anyone, so no report was filed, and in some cases, the person never called the police. In the U.S. according to one source, it's 2.5 million each year, but that statistic is based on a "surv…ey" so there's no way to really know exactly how accurate it is. ( 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 )
Automobiles killed more. FBI Uniform Crime Report will have what you are looking for it data has been published.
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.
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 )
Handguns were used in the first world war extensively because they were easier to wield in trench warfare. Since then they have been primarily issued to troops who for confined space reasons would have trouble carrying a rifle. For example Armored crewmen, transport drivers, clerical personnel. Su…bmachineguns are also commonly issued in many armies for these reasons. ( Full Answer )
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.
The question can't be answered unless you provide the age range you mean when you say "kids".
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 )
You need to talk to a lawyer with the specifics of your situation. Could range from a fine to multiple years in federal prison and fines.
GuyFawkes placed 36 barrels in a wood store room under the House of Lords building, had they all been detonated would have leveled most of the Westminster palace complex.
No exact answer, as there is no exact record- a good estimate is about 120 million privately owned handguns in the US.
There are really no firm numbers to answer this question- but it would be several millions of people. They would include the farmer that keeps a shotgun for protection of his livestock from wild animals, the merchant that keeps a handgun for protection from an armed robbery, and the private citizen …that keeps a firearm for personal defense from a mugger. This does not include law enforcement officers, military, or private security staff, like the guard at the bank, or the driver of the armored car that carries money from a business to the bank. There are estimates that firearms are used for defense by private citizens in the US several million times each year. ( Full Answer )
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".
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.
In 2007, the latest figure available from the Centers for Disease Control, 31,224 people died from gun injuries (mostly suicides) compared to 438,000 from cigarettes.
The most current year that data is available for is 2005. In that year, US manufacturers produced 1,088,827 handguns. Not quite 3,000 per day. That does not count handguns that are made outside the US and imported. Nor does it count handguns that are legally made by a private citizen for their own u…se, nor black powder type firearms.

There is no way to know. What is confiscated could be as low as 1 percent or as high as 10 percent of the total.
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. ( Full Answer )
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.
Because there is no registration for airsoft guns there is no record of how many were sold.

More people are killed by firearms in the USA than by motor vehicle accidents (40,000)
No way to answer your question. In the US, there is no requirement under Federal law to register firearms, so no records of how many guns total, It is estimated that at least 25% of US households have at least one firearm.
In 2005 there were 14,916 men who used a gun to end their own life. The same year, there were 2086 women who used guns.
Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
In America, the foremost means of committing suicide (arguably) is with guns -- mostly handguns. Men choose this method quite frequently; women somewhat less so, preferring poisons. Exact numbers are hard to obtain, for quite a few reasons. For example, it's often easier on the survivors if the ev…ent can be called an accident instead of an acutal suicide, so reporting is less than spot on. ( Full Answer )
Thosands- although not as many as the muskets that were used. There are no specific numbers of firearms available.
The number of people murdered by guns in the USA (11,493) is 1/40 of that by cigarettes.
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.
There are no exact records, since you do not need a permit to own in gun in most places. It is ESTIMATED that between 1/3 and 1/2 of all households in the US own at least one gun.
about 11,000 and about 40 are with an AR15 type gun. Drunk drivers kill 8,000, workplace kills 7,000, drub abuse kills 17,000. So what do we focus on?
No records. Most of the US does not require gun registration, so there is no central record.
Despite belief to the contrary, in MOST of the US, there is no requirement to register ordinary guns.
Practically all the wars, local or otherwise, in the Western world since the 16th century and almost all the wars on this whole planet since the 17th century. They are too numerous to count.
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.
