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 )
a lot of people die especially children. they can die for anything, especially babies because there fragile. also they can die of cat death.
It depends on your definition of kids. If you mean young goats then many thousands, if you mean young human children then many, many more. Nor can it be all prevented.
There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
21,000 children under the age of 14 day every day. Most of thesedeaths are from car accidents and underage drinking.
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." ( Full Answer )
4 in every 5 kids in high school have tried alcohol and 3 out of 4 are using alcohol.
It depends on what you mean by "use." Could you be a little more specific?
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 )
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
An 1873 Winchester Carbine, it was shorter and lighter than the rifle, and carried a dozen .44-.40-caliber, center-fired cartridges (the rifle carried 15) and a single-action Colt .45-caliber Peacemaker as well as the double-action Colt .41-caliber Thunderer (the Kid's preferred the latter). His fav…orite firearm was the 1873 Winchester Carbine. ( Full Answer )
Impossible to answer. You would have to ask every family in the world and then believe that the answer you got was true.
100 000 children die needlessly from cancer every year. Childhood Cancer Parent Organisations say that of the 220,000 children who develop cancer every year, 80% die without adequate treatment. Many do not even receive morphine.
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 )
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 )
There are 89% of kids in America who have laptops in their rooms. But children 10 and up are the only ones who should have them their. Otherwise you should monitor your child thats any younger.
These kids used to live on my block and always played with them (they wore protective cloths). But I really don't think it's that safe. ^ First answer by http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Contributions&target=ip:ID1205617752 ALSO: BB guns arnt THAT dangerous because they really don't pierce the… skin. You can kill chipmunks and soem birds with them but we had 2 guys who worked for us wo were messin around with one and shootin themselves in the leg and it hurt but it didnt go into the skin or anything. But if you do give one to a child i recommend you have them use it with adult supervision. My dad also got me one when i was around 8. i didnt really use it but i used it with him a couple of times or maybe once. I don't know, but i think if the child is 7 or 8 and under, that they use the gun with adult supervision. I also recommend you reserach this answer more than this because im no BB gun expert or anything, that's just my experience. So maybe do some other research on it but i hope a little bit of this helps. God Bless Ya!! Root-Beer-Girl what do you mean by root bear girl? ( Full Answer )
The question is difficult to answer for several reasons. For starters, many gang-members are teenaged, and when killed by rival gang members or in confrontations with armed citizens or police officers, they are often counted as being children killed by guns. In addition, what age is set as the li…ne between childhood and adulthood varies by the group collecting statistics, further muddying the data. If 18 is the cut-off, as it is in many studies, then 17 and 18 y/o soldiers and killed in wars have been counted as children killed by gun violence. One study even included 21 y/o individuals! As a vast majority of infantrymen are very young, this further skews the data. A study by John Lott, which excluded gang on gang violence and "children" in careers involving combat found that roughly 1300 children were killed by accidental shootings and the like per year. To put that in perspective, swimming pools, pillows, staircases, and cars kill thousands more each year in the USA. ( Full Answer )
18,775 kids die each year from guns. that's 18 and under. or iheard. ******************* Any study of this subject needs to be closely examined. One "study"included people up to the age of 26, and included deaths such asshot by a person defending themselves when attacked by thedeceased. The US Cente…r for Disease Control conducted a study in1994 of 26 countries, including the US. This study addressedchildren as being age 15 and younger. In all countriescombined , there were 957 deaths of children related tofirearms. 55% were murder, 20% suicide, and 22% accidents. A smallpercentage was "unknown". There is a lot of difference between 957and 18,775. ****************** For the US, The National Center for Health Statistics report statesthat 10,945 people died as a result of a gun related homicide. Ofthat number 220 were under the age of 15. The full report can beaccessed at www cdc gov/injury/wisqars/leadingcauses.html ( 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 )
A lot less then everyone thinks. Yes, there are kids that do them but there are also kids that don't. And just because some kids do drugs that doesn't mean all kids do. I don't and I'm a Teen.
according to possibly biased statistics, about 360 people a year ( some say mainly children) almost one-a-day die from firearms ( accidents) despite the efforts of the NRA and hunter-safety councils etc. in any case the majority are juvenile. whether this includes intentional firearm homicides by ki…ds- which does happen, is unknown.

It is unknown because not all cases have been solved. The Kidnapper might want ransom, or it is something personal with the family. It is also possible that the kidnapper might be mentally impaired, and can not think straight, there for commit a crime.
No exact answer, as there is no exact record- a good estimate is about 120 million privately owned handguns in the US.
31,224 firearm-related deaths in 2007 for the United states. Divide by 365 for a daily rate yields 85.5 deaths per day. In the U.S. for 2008, there were 30,896 deaths from firearms, distributed as follows by mode of death: Suicide 16,883; murder 12,791; Accident 642; Legal Intervention 360; Undet…ermined 220... which is .01029% of the 300,000,000 million+ US population. Compared to the number of deaths in 2008 by automobiles was 46,005 over 1/3 were alcohol/drug related.Which is .01533% of the 300,000,000 million+ US population However this does not include the 17,328 pedestrians that were killed by automobiles in 2008 in the US..which of the 17,328 killed over 47% were intoxicated.

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".
Not sure of the legality, but it is stupid for kids to play in public with real looking guns. Find someone with some private land and play there. Or go to a real field and play in a structured safe environment.
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 increase over the past months so about 70% or even more thepercentage is not very sure because it changes a lot!
We know with out a doubt he owned and used a Colt Model 1873 Army SA in 45 long (single action) and a Winchester Rifle Model 1873 44-40. Both of these weapons are in Billy's possession in the only known photo of him. Billy has his Colt on his left side and is holding his Winchester (which was his …weapon of choice). Due to the Colt being holstered on his left hip many people believed he was left handed. This how ever is an error. Any "gun guy" worth a lick of salt would have noticed the Winchester was backwards on close inspection. Back then when the photo was developed they had to reverse them because they were backwards. That was never done. As for other guns many historians believe he had a Colt Thunderer, or Lightening and more then likely he owned my favorite revolver a S&W Schofield in 45 S&W, known know as 45 short. Even though the Colt and the Schofield are both chambered in a 45 caliber projectile the caseing is longer on the Colt which gives it a little more power but the Schofield can reload much, much, quicker. Especially while on hoarse back. ( Full Answer )

None,unless a person uses it or sometimes the gun shoots by its self because of heat or something else.
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.

I'm not sure probably none they might be able to if for say it rolled the eye ball over and went into the brain but even then it probably at the most may give brain damage simply because airsoft bullets don't have enough weight/mass to kill but BB guns can but only the superpowerfull ones probably 4…50 fps and up at point blank and don't try it yourself.

Impossible to answer without defining what age "kids" are and during what time frame. Also, you will have to define "accident"

Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
About 300,000 children have epliepsy in the United States. All together this has effected about 3 million adults and children all around.
No one answer. By legal means- being given a firearm by an adult, with the approval of your parents, and by illegal means- stealing a firearm.
Eight kids were killed in 9/11- five on American Flight 77 ranging in age from 3 to 11 years old; and three on United Flight 175 ages 2, 3, and 4.
Not that many. So far, according to news reports there have been a little over 12 people that have died from ADHD medication. What they didn't state was HOW they died. Adderall is one of the safest stimulant medications to take....Also, death from these medications is extremely rare. The only rea…son they placed that black box warning about death on these medications was because of the several children that died in Canada. In technicality, you can't die from this medication unless you have a congenital heart defect or high blood pressure OR you severely overdose. The children that have died were from the following...congenital heart defects, overdose, and putting excessive stress upon the heart while on adderall...something that you DO NOT do. Yet, all of these parents sit around and blame adderall. I personally believe that this is a result of neglect and misinformation, not adderall. ( Full Answer )
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.
If by kids you mean children then the answer is far too many. If you mean young goats then the answer is enough.
