How many individuals in the US own a gun?
No exact number, as there are no exact records, but a best estimate is sightly more than one third of all households have at least one firearm.
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 has never been a survey created for this question, most likely because someone would not be willing to admit they have an "Illegal gun". Additionally, whenever someone is discovered to possess a gun illegally, it usually gets taken from them, and they no longer have it..
There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
Anyone who is of the proper age (18 for rifles and shotguns, 21 for handguns) and isn't one of the following: Fugitives of justice Felons and people convicted of some misdemeanors People under indictment for certain crimes Illegal aliens Anyone that has been found mentally unstable Unlawf…ul users of any controlled substance Anyone dishonorably discharged from the military Anyone who has renounced their U.S. citizenship Anyone subject to a restraining order for stalking, harassing, or threatening ( Full Answer )
The most recent study, from '94, showed 25% of adults in the U.S. own guns. That's about 54,450 million citizens! Numbers for the whole world are impossible. (courtesy of kgbanswer.com)
Yes. However legal machine guns are very tightly controlled. States and local governments can make their own laws that are more restrictive, so that is not true everywhere. Federal law requires that you apply for a "transfer tax stamp" which requires a fair amount of paperwork, background chec…k, approvals, etc. and $200. The law is very strict and violations can get you many years in prison. Federal law prohibited the making of machine guns after 1986 (except for police and military use). Thus, there are a limited number of legal machine guns, and the prices for them are usually over $10,000 and up.. yes, but you must have a special permit for one. not just a regular gun permit. and it would be really hard to get it.. It isn't a permit; it's a tax stamp. It isn't that hard to get, it just takes a while to get the approval, usually several months. ( Full Answer )
I would guess more than 80 percent. The only type of investor (corprate, institutional, LP, etc.) that is not owned by individuals are endowments. So it usually is individuals that are the investors or the investors in most investment vehicles. The percentage of the market that is "controlled" by in…dividuals is much smaller. ( Full Answer )
18 for long guns. 21 for hand guns. --- Actually, those are the ages for purchasing from a dealer. Federal law does not list an age limit for possession of long guns and lists 18 as the age limit for possession of handguns -- though you will not be able to buy ammo for a handgun until age 21.
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 )
90% of America owns a gun 30% of the people owning a revolvers 16% owning automatics and the rest shotguns and or rifles. No exact answer is possible, since there is no national requirement for registration of firearms, and MOST states have no such requirement. In the Gallup Poll conducted in 2004,… the rate of gun ownership was about 3 of every 10 American adults. That is about 92,771,000 people. There are other surveys with other numbers, however, they are somewhat suspect, since they seek to advance a political agenda. ( Full Answer )
Federal law specifies 21 or older for a handgun and 18 or older for a rifle or shotgun.
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
It depends on where you are. In the U.S. in most states, nothing is required in the way of papework, and it's legal as long as both parties reside in the same state, however, you should check with your local authorities to be sure.
There are slightly fewer than two million privately owned guns inthe United Kingdom. Gun ownership in the United States is about 200million.
That's an extremely difficult question to answer with any accuracy. Depending on who you ask, there are between 150 million and 275 million guns in the U.S. but there is no national registration and most states don't require registration, so there is no way to really know exactly how many people own… guns.

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 )
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.
as many as they want but in other countrys like Iraq you can only have 1 gun for robbers The US Constitution does not set a limit on the number of guns a US resident may own. However, various laws regulate the kinds of guns, and local laws in some areas greatly restrict ownership.
pretty much alot of people worldwide own airsoft guns, think about it this way, 1 of of every 6 person in the united states owns an airsoft gun i don't know about Europe because i don't live there>
Yes. and just a correction the Thompson is not a machine gun its a sub machine gun because it shoots pistol caliber rounds get your facts straight
Providing they are transported in accordance with the law, yes. These laws usually state that the firearms must be securely wrapped, and transported in a portion of the vehicle not accessible to the occupants.
The last published data on this is by the National Safety Council (USA) in 2005; in that year a total of 500 people were killed by accidental firearms usage in the USA (This included some suicides) - in perspective 16,200 from poison, 900 people died from drowning inside their home and the only lowe…r number was 400 people by exposure (Heat or Cold). ( Full Answer )
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".
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.
No way to answer your question- in MOST of the US, there is no requirement for registration of ordinary rifles, pistols and shotguns- so no numbers available. It is ESTIMATED that between 1/4 and 1/3 of all Americans own a firearm.
How many of US gun related crimes involved unregistered handguns or guns registered to someone other than the individual committing the crime?
There is no requirement for registration of handguns to an owner in 98% of the US. Despite what you may see in the movies.
The most recent study, from '94, showed 25% of adults in the U.S. own guns. That's about 54,450 million citizens! Numbers for the whole world are impossible.
Since there is, by law, no general registration of firearms in the USA - there are only estimates, and they range from a low of 76 million to a high of over 120 million gun owners. Current surveys (2010 and later) put the percentage of households that had a gun in them in the low 40s (40-45%) and… the number of adults who said they personally owned a gun in the low 30s (30-34%). Given that roughly 75% of the population is an adult, that means that there are about 225 million adults, and, thus, between 67 and 77 million adults who own a gun. Note that the number of people owning guns (both as a percentage and in absolute numbers) has been slowly falling for the past 30 years. The total number of guns owned by an individual who has at least one gun, however, has skyrocketted. ( Full Answer )
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 know. The number is in the high millions, and varies country to country. In the US, it is estimated that there are over 75 million gun owners- about a quarter of the US population.
You will have to tell us what you really want to know. In the US? In Europe? In the world? Military? Civilian?
Not until you get into specialty/niche market items. Some states may require you to be issued a pistol permit before buying a handgun, and you'll always have to obtain licencing before purchasing any Title II NFA items (suppressors, short barreled rifles and shotguns, full auto weapons, etc).
Yes ,of course Nope, sorry that is wrong. Basically, anyone who is legally in the U.S. and who is not a felon can own a gun here. Resident aliens can purchase firearms with proof of residency and non-resident aliens can purchase firearms with proof of residency and a hunting license. If there is an…y doubt to my answer, check the federal firearm purchase form 4473. There are a couple of sections with instructions for non-citizens. ( Full Answer )
No exact number, as there are no exact records, but a best estimateis sightly more than one third of all households have at least onefirearm.
More people are killed by firearms in the USA than by motor vehicle accidents (40,000)
Yes, but let's be sure we are using the same words- UPS, FedEx, and the US Postal service ship firearms, antique firearms, reproduction firearms, and replica firearms. Goods entering the US will need to pass through US Customs, no matter who the shipping carrier. Firearms are guns that discharge… a bullet from a chemical explosion, and are made after 1898. They must be shipped to an importer. Guns made before 1899, or muzzleloading guns (even if new)are Antique Firearms. Reproduction firearms are a modern day copy of a real gun. They are treated the same as the original gun. If they shoot bullets, they are legally firearms (unless muzzleloaders) REPLICA guns are a non-shooting, will not chamber real ammo, cannot be MADE to shoot copy of a real gun. They are not firearms. Firearms, and reproduction firearms must be shipped TO a Federal Firearms Licensee in your home state (dealer). Antique firearms, and non-firing replicas may be shipped directly to you. Modern handguns (real kind) may not be mailed in the US mail except by dealers. ( Full Answer )
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.
Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
We do not have exact numbers, but about 1/3 of all households have at least 1 gun.
No information, and it will depend on where you are. In MOST of the US, there is no licensing of gun owners, thus no records of number of men OR women..
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.
200 million people are killed and then become stupide becouse this page is not factuale
No records, since in most of the US, guns and gun owners are not registered. A very rough estimate in in the millions of women.
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.
Since there is no master list of who owns a gun, and gun purchase information does NOT include political affiliation- there is no way to answer your question. The actual division of owns/ does not own is more likely to be where you live. People in inner cities own relatively few guns, people that li…ve in the suburbs more, and in the country, most. It is estimated that about 1/3 of all US households have at least one gun. ( Full Answer )
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.
As of 2012, there were 51,438 retail gun stores, and 7,356 pawn shops with a gun dealer's license. There are about 62,000 collectors with a Federal Firearms license.
In general, if you are a law-abiding citizen over age 21, you can own a firearm. There are certain local exceptions such as New York City, Washington, D.C. and Chicago, but even these are being litigated. Don't do anything stupid with it. If you plan to purchase a gun, I recommend that you take a…n NRA-certified safety course (you can find those through your local firearms dealer, sporting goods store, or shooting range) and try several models. Any decent firearms dealer will ask you why you want a gun, and what you plan to use it for; this is so that he can suggest the best gun for your purposes. ( Full Answer )
