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.
Accidental each year would be around 1500. But deliberate killing would have to be over 12,000 deaths a year from 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.
None, a firearm has never killed anyone by itself, People kill people with guns, or they get shot when the gun is not properly cleared of any rounds.
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 )
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
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)
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 lot. USPSA has 12 or 15 thousand members, IDPA has about 10 thousand, then there are bullseye shooters, PPC shooters, silhouette, and various others.
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.
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.
A very difficult question to accurately answer. The answer depends on which study you want to read. I have seen one study that puts the number of defensive uses of firearms by US private citizens at 64,000 a year, and other studies at 2,500,000 times a year. How many of those uses resulted in someon…e being "saved" is an open question- we cannot say that someone WOULD have died until they DO die. Without question, there IS a large number of events where people have used a firearm- or the threat of a firearm- to protect themselves from an attack. Just my personal belief- you will not find an accurate number, since in many cases, people that have defended themselves do not attempt to report the crime, but remain silent out of fear of being prosecuted for defending themselves.

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.
This can be answered on several different levels. Guns and their benefits as opposed to other weapons Guns are relatively inexpensive, and fairly easy to use. They can be used in a variety of situations and are often more readily available and accessible than other weapons. As opposed to more acc…essible weapons like knives, guns can inflict much larger damage in a quicker time frame. Guns can be used to specifically target individuals, versus other weapons such as the passive mine, or area weapons like a grenade. They can also be used to kill or subdue crowds of people at once. Guns have a variety of effective ranges, allowing people to kill either up close or further away, perhaps away from physical danger. Sound The loud blast can be frightening to bystanders or the victim, deterring resistance. On the reverse side, guns with silencers can kill without alerting other people. Why do people kill?

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 )
1 gun for every 7 people on the planet. Daily over one thousand people are shot. Most die, the bulk of this number of people live in Africa or the Middle East.

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 )
Typically, there are approximately 30,000 US deaths due to firearms in the US each year. In 2007 according to the Centers for Disease Control Faststats and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control WIQARS Leading Causes of Nonfatal Injury Reports: 48,676 people were intentionally s…hot who survived. (NCIPC) 18,610 people were unintentionally shot who survived. (NCIPC) 17,352 suicides (intentionally shot themselves who died) (CDC) 12,632 criminal firearm deaths (killed in a crime by guns) (CDC) This does not include deaths of people intentionally or unintentionally shot for legal reasons (Like the police shooting a suspect). The above total is 97270 people shot in the US in 2007. About a third (29984) died, and it is likely that the total number of Americans shot is at least 100,000 given that all types of gunshot injuries/deaths are not included. In the US, every day during 2007, about 266 Americans were shot . Every day, a third of them (82 daily) died. ( Full Answer )
No exact answer, as there is no exact record- a good estimate is about 120 million privately owned handguns in the US.
You need to define the term "gun control". In the US, there are several thousand different laws on guns. Laws that cover who can own a gun, who (and where) a gun can be carried, size of the gun, what it can be made of, how many shots it can hold, etc etc. The problem is, people that do not follow la…ws that forbid robbery, murder, theft, kidnapping- ALSO do not follow gun laws. The result is that laws mainly affect honest people that do not break the law. Several countries have effectively banned private ownership of guns, in the belief that it would reduce crime. However, they have since found that crime rates INCREASE after such a ban, since law abiding persons now have lost the ability to defend themselves. ( Full Answer )
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.
No, they are not. Firearms are used for hunting and for sport- mainly target shooting. If you have been following the Winter Olympics, one of the VERY demanding sports is the Biathalon, which involves cross country skiing, and rifle marksmanship.

Wooden stocks (the part that you put into the pocket of your shoulder when you're in a firing position) are made from trees. The American military as well as most European militaries don't use wooden stocks with their weapons anymore. It's mostly plastic and polymer. Russia still uses the AK-47…, which typically has a wooden stock. ( Full Answer )

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 )
We do not have exact numbers, but about 1/3 of all households have at least 1 gun.
As many as they can afford and have room to store properly. You can only shoot one at a time.
well along time ago people were aloud to use guns for hunting. one day someone discovered that if it can kill animals then it might kill humans. so he murdered a human. and then he got arrested and then police officers used against criminals and then No one was aloud to use guns
That is not easily answerable. US constitutional law prohibits the accumulation of this information into a central database. Also a large portion of sales in the US are secondary private sales from one owner to a new owner and not regulated. Dealers are required to log every sale in a register (log …book) but are not required to notify the government of a sale, with the exception that they MUST run a background check on each purchaser and maintain that record. Any number of gun sales in the US can only be estimated. With all available information I could only estimate that in the past 8 months that between 10 and 12 million gun sales have occurred in the US so far in 2012 based on a report in 2011 that 14 million background checks had been made, extrapolating that forward and adding 25% guesstimating that 20% of sales are private sales. The US has more than 90 million legal gun owners. ( Full Answer )
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.
Your question is too broad to be able to be answered. Please reword and repost.
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.
