Man I have made a pile of money from the sale of old junk guns that 2 years ago I couldn't give away. I got almost $3000 for a Ak47 that I paid less than $300 for. Love it! But in 2 years from now they will be back down to $300. I will pay my dues to the NRA so they will put out some more Bull so I can make more MONEY! LOVE THAT NRA FOR SURE!

Of course it works -- it's the usless laws that don't!!! There are more than 130,000 federally licensed firearms dealers in the US. Compare that with a 144,000 gas stations nation wide or 137,000 grocery stores – are you getting the picture here? The US has the highest gun ownership rate in the world – there are 89 guns for every 100 Americans, compared to 4 in the UK and Canada. The murder figures are astounding; the Brits show around 550 murders per year. In 2011 there were 12,664 murders in the US, 8,583 were caused by firearms.
Your count would include all C&R collectors and all other types of FFLs. See http://www.atf.gov/about/foia/ffl-list.html

Once again you illustrate your lack of attention to detail and the ability to comprehend the information you read.

I provide you with a complete list of all FFL licenses and type directly from the ATF. You then accuse me of not knowing facts. Do you know what a C&R is? Is a C&R license holder a dealer?

As usual you dismiss any valid source of information. In another thread I provided you with information from a liberal source. You then accuse me of using talking points. Your level of ignorance is astounding.

Your website explains nothing, the fact remains that we have over a hundred thousand individuals that are licensed to sell guns to anyone, your idiotic post does not address any of my points – why, because you have nothing but fantasies!

It doesn’t explain anything. It lists all the of FFL holders which means all licensed dealers are listed. Do you need step by step explanation to understand anything? I provided you a link to EVERY FFL holder. You of course claim it’s useless.

We do NOT have over 100,000 individuals licensed to sell guns. Every liberal source takes the total number of FFL licenses without regard to license type. They assume every licensee sells guns. That’s simply not the case. Worse, the sources feed off misinformation from each other.

Many are C&R holders which can deal only in old arms. Most C&R holders are collectors, not resellers. Some FFL holders only provide transfer services and don’t sell anything but service.

You want it broken down so even an idiot can understand it? www.atf.gov/publications/firearms/121611-fire...

2010 there were 47,664 licensed dealers *NOT* over 100,000. That doesn’t mean more than 47,000 gun stores. Again, many license holders only provide transfer services. Contrary to what you believe the number of FFL licenses have dropped over the decades. There was a slight increase from 09 to 10. In 1990 there were 235,684 FFL holders, that dropped to the 47,664 in 2010.

This tries to explain the confusion. http://www.politifact.com/georgia/statements/...

Even though they conclude the claim is mostly true they conclude there *as many as* 25,000 businesses selling guns. A long way from your false claim of 130,000.

You speak of fantasy; my numbers come directly from the ATF. Where do your numbers come from?

Really now? I don't recall any murderers starting this discussion. What I do recall is a mass murder that took place, and Democrats starting this discussion. Not only did they start the discussion, they threatened citizens with bans on assault weapons and magazine sizes. I recall Joe Biden stating that DumBama will use executive orders to pass legislation against guns if need be.

After that, guns flew off the shelves and ammunition disappeared. A huge increase in CCW applications and ammunition so scarce that even police can't get their hands on any. Ammunition manufacturers working 24/7 and still can't keep up with demand.

A little more info on FFL-03 C&R license holders. C&R FFL's (also called Crufflers) are NOT dealers in any way shape or form. They are collectors of curio and relic firearms only. An FFL-03 is NOT a license to do business in firearms. What the license does is keep the buyer from having to go through a background check every time they by a C&R firearm, and they can receive direct shipment of C&R firearms if bought out of state. http://www.cruffler.com/whatis.html
