You'd be daft to register any fire arms to your name.
Colorado comes in at number 20, with 12 guns for every 1,000 residents. That's 63,178 registered firearms among 5,268,367 people.
In this picture, a customer holds a Smith & Wesson pistol at Firing-Line Aurora, Colorado, not far from where the Aurora theater shooting took place.
Texas comes in at number 18, with 12.8 guns on record for every 1,000 residents. That's 337,309 firearms among 26,448,193 people. In fact, the actual numbers are probably higher because Texans are not required by law to register their firearms. As such, the ATF can only count those who seek background checks.
In this photo, an attendee wears a 2nd Amendment shirt while inspecting an assault rifle during the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits in Houston, Texas. More than 70,000 people attended the NRA's three-day annual meeting that year, which featured nearly 550 exhibitors, a gun trade show and a political rally.
