How Many Guns For Each American?

Someone from the UK stopped by searching for ‘How many guns for each American.

It is unlikely that the number of guns would be evenly divisible by the population, so,

Divided as equally as possible, Ezch American would own 2.27 guns.

Each American family, which consists of 2.73 family members, would own 6.197 guns.

However, approximately 254 million Americans live in homes with no guns at all, with 63,500,000 unable to buy a gun for reason of the difficulty of getting permission to buy and possess a gun, for reasons of a felony conviction or other disability, or because of disinclination.

The one fifth of Americans who do not or cannot own guns suffer the highest crime victimization rates and the highest percentage of those who pursue a cirminal lifestyle.
