30% of the US population say that they personally own guns. There are also a lot of people who may not own guns, but their family members have guns that will be used to protect their household. The problem with this is there are some people who should not have access to these guns, but they know where the guns are placed.
Take note that there is no actual database available for the number of people who own guns in the US. Take note that there are also some people in the US who own more than one gun. Some collect guns, and there are also others who use guns for hunting and recreational purposes.
There are about 118 million households in America that are gun holders. They just feel that having a gun is safe for them because they know that there are always many threats. There are some people who may feel that their houses may get burglarized. Some people may feel that their lives are being threatened.
They believe that having a gun will make sure that they can protect not only themselves and their loved ones. There are obviously millions of people who own guns in the United States, and some of them may even have more than five guns at home. Some would require that each family member would need to have guns.
