"There Are More Than Three Times As Many Gun Dealers In The United States As There Are Grocery Stores"

According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, there are 129,817 federally licensed firearms dealers in the United States. That’s more than three times as many as there are grocery stores (36,569), almost as many as there are gas stations (143,839), and an order of magnitude more than there are McDonald’s restaurants (14,098).
