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 )
Legality of Air Soft Guns . Yes, they are legal; however some cities have regulations about shooting them within city limits. They also have to have a red tip on them for people to distinguish between real guns and the others.

There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
Yes as long as its on your own property and you are not hitting anything else not on someone elses property.. ie the tree over the fence.
A non-US citizen needs a green card or a US-issued hunting license in order to purchase a gun in the US.
Yes! Have you heard of San Diego Spree? Dynasty? Hornets? Its legal unless used for vandilization.
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 )
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 )
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 )
Yes they are legal in most states except for a few. They are illegal or have some restrictions in the following States: . HAWAII . ILLINOIS . MASSACHUSETTS . MICHIGAN . NEW JERSEY . NEW YORK . RHODE ISLAND . WISCONSIN
Yes because it is the state of New York's property. If you have permission from New York you may.
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.
It all depends on where you live. In most places you must be 18 to purchase a BB gun but you can use one at any age with adult supervision.
police, SWAT team, military, peopple like that.. And plenty of people that aren't any of those use guns legally also. I use a gun legally every day. Shooting instructors, target shooters, competitors in shooting competitions, hunters, collectors, people who use guns for self defense; those all come… to mind also and you don't have to be a police officer, SWAT team member, or member of the military to qualify.

\nit depends on what shift you work and where. my uncle who works 3rd Shift as a security guard at the Mall has a 350 FPS Glock Style Airsoft pistol .
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 )
Well for one thing you have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. And another thing - Why not??? before america was born. when it was just an idea the only thing keeping that idea alive was the muskets the resistance group would carry. and without that america would have died a long …time ago not to mention the self defence factors, and the hunting lovers. what were supposed to hunt with a sling shot? and defend ourselves with a freakin rock? we arent rubbing sticks together to make fire and bashing our women in the head to mate anymore ( 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 )
That will depend on where you are located. The term legal means that something complies with a law- and those laws vary from country to country, and state to state. Without knowing WHICH laws, there is no answer to that question. Sorry-
If you mean Mexican-Americans, being those people who were born inthe US from Mexican parents, or have been granted "the green card",those would be approximately 34 million, or 10.9% of totalpopulation.
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 )
There are currently over 300 million legal citizens in the UnitedStates. The world population is over 1 billion people.
You don't need a specific age, but it says on the package that you have to be a specific age to shoot the air-gun, usually 15-18 depending on how strong the air-gun is. and if its on your own land, you can generally be any age, just so long by land you mean your own property.how old do have to be t…o own land in Ala ( 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".
This is a question best directed to an official of the Customs service. Likewise, any US embassy or consulate may be contacted which should be able to answer the question for you. Certain forms may need to be filled out beforehand. One problem which may arise is that most airsoft guns outside the US… are allowed to look very authentic, whereas, in the US, they are required to have orange colouration to indicate their non-authentic nature. ( Full Answer )
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.
18 for Title 1 rifles and shotguns, 21 for Title 1 handguns, and any Title II items (full auto weapons, short barreled rifles/shotguns, AOW, destructive devices, etc.)
Yes. To be transferrable, the firearm must have been manufactured and imported prior to the Gun Control Act of 1968 (for imported weapons), or have been manufactured prior to the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 (for domestically manufactured weapons, including imported weapons which were made …922r compliant with US-made parts and converted).

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 )
since an airsoft gun is considered a toy it is legal for any age but you have to be 18 or older to buy it
For imported machine guns, anything which was imported and NFA tax stamped prior to the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968. For domestically manufactured weapons (including imported weapons which have had parts replaced with a sufficient number of parts to not be considered imported under 922r),… anything which was manufactured and NFA tax stamped prior to the passage of the Firearms Owner's Protection Act of 1986. ( Full Answer )
I assume you mean a fully automatic firearm- commonly known as a machinegun- and the answer is yes, they can. While a few states do not permit ownership of machineguns by private citizens, most do. Transfer of ownership of a full auto must be made through a dealer that holds a "Class III" endorsemen…t to his Federal Firearms License. You must apply to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for the transfer, along with fingerprint cards, consent from your local Chief Law Enforcement Officer, and a $200 transfer tax. After a background investigation, the BATFE gives it's approval for transfer of ownership to you. ONLY full auto weapons made prior to May 1986 can be transferred between private citizens, and they are VERY expensive- a full auto M16 rifle is between $12,000 and $15,000 right now. ( Full Answer )
bb guns are allowed in all areas of the Uk 13 years old can buy and use bb guns without adult sepervsion. Any younger and you must have an adult with you
There is no minimum age while you are under instruction from an adult, with the approval of your parents. Different states have different ages for using a gun alone (such as hunting)
No you just need to be 18 or older. A BB gun in the USA is not considered a firearm in most states. If the store sells BB guns then they are legal in that location.
More people are killed by firearms in the USA than by motor vehicle accidents (40,000)
Yes, but they are highly restricted by laws passed in 1934, 1968, and 1986. The paperwork to possess a machine gun takes months to be processed. Possession without this paperwork is a federal felony worth 10 years in federal prison.
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?
No. It would require a licence for importation, even if the gun was made in the US.
"Best" is much too subjective a term. What's 'best' depends on what you're using it for, and how you would define best.
Under Federal law, it is a title 1 firearm, and can be sold like any handgun. Your state laws may vary. Company is no longer is business.
Yes. more citizens there own them than any other country. it is basic right protected by our constitution. There is nothing wrong with legal ownership of guns and helps keep our Government our Government and not let it become something else. With over 80 million gun owners owning over 800 million gu…ns, the American hunters and gun owners make for the largest army in the world. ( 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.
