At the end of 2010 it was estimated that 45% of Americans own

guns. If you took the percentage of guns to the number of

Americans, the number rises to 90%. Of course, many of these

numbers are off due to many gun transfers at gun shows which is a

transfer from one private collection to another, so in many

instances these are not registered transfers.
