16. at least they can pawn them ...

 

... or, equally likely, sell them on the private market (to acquaintances, through ads in the pennysaver ...).

Since there are virtually no controls in the US on private sales (it may vary by state and type of handgun) -- and in fact private sellers have no way of finding out whether the person making the purchase is legally eligible to possess firearms, unless they pay a licensed dealer to conduct the transaction -- this means there are that many more firearms that could easily be transferred to people not legally eligible to possess them, e.g. criminals.
