As proof that Americans love guns, people cite the high number of individual gun ownership in our country. Because the government doesn't have a national gun registry (at least that's what they say), the actual number of guns owned by Americans is unknown. However, a 2018 survey estimated Americans own over 393 million guns. The population of the US at the time of the survey was around 330 million, which works out to slightly over one firearm per person.
