There are so many people who have a gun in America because this has long been a part of their culture. The use of guns has been highly popularized through the many films that they have created. It became apparent later on that even civilians will have no trouble getting guns. Right now, there are some laws regarding who can own guns.

For example, convicted felons will not be able to own guns, but those who are above 21 years old who do not have any record will have no trouble purchasing certain types of guns from their own local gun store. There are also more gun stores in America as compared to the other parts of the world.

There are a lot of civilians in the United States who own guns, and this is considered to be normal for them. Most people can just go to a gun shop and purchase a gun as long as their age will allow them to purchase. Those who are under 18 years old are not allowed to purchase guns. There are also some guns that will come with a higher age requirement.

People should be aware of these rules, and they should always show a valid ID when they purchase. Those who own guns are also required to keep the guns in a safe place. The requirement is that those who do not own a gun license should not be able to access it. Unfortunately, there are a lot of kids who have access to the guns of their other family members.
