How many legally owned guns in US?
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.

A non-US citizen needs a green card or a US-issued hunting license in order to purchase a gun in the US.
Not nearly enough.
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 check, 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.
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.
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 member…s of the NRA. If you are one of the other 76 million, please join us.
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 i…f 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 to own land in Ala
Under US law? No.
21 for hand gun 18 for long gun
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).
Varies by country. In the US, it's 18 for Title I long barreled firearms (rifles and shotguns), and 21 for handguns and Title II NFA items (machine guns, short barreled rifles…, suppressors, etc).
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 (includin…g 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.
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 priv…ate citizens, most do. Transfer of ownership of a full auto must be made through a dealer that holds a "Class III" endorsement 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.
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.
