According to a Gallup poll from October 2011, 47 percent of all Americans reported ownership of a gun in their home or on their property. Gallup estimated that 34 percent of Americans age 18 and over personally own a gun.
There are an estimated 315 million people in the US and 115 million households. Realizing the the 70-80 million number comes from the NRA -- only 70-80 gun owners still sounds low.

There are a lot of guns in America that have never required any kind of registration. In fact most guns are probably in that category.
I don’t think I know anyone who owns just one gun.
