How many people use guns?
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
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.
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
Same reason as always- for defense, for hunting, and sport.
None. People are not genetically related to guns.
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.
Far less than die at the hands of doctors and drunk drivers. Try the FBI Uniform Crime Report for criminal use of firearms.
the number would be in the tens of million's.
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 nev…er 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 "survey" so there's no way to really know exactly how accurate it is.
Automobiles killed more. FBI Uniform Crime Report will have what you are looking for it data has been published.
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.
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 Cen…ter for Injury Prevention and Control WIQARS Leading Causes of Nonfatal Injury Reports: 48,676 people were intentionally shot 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.
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.
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.
