Theft from Gun Stores in the United States between 2008-2010

62,000 arms were lost from gun stores inventories between 2008 and 2010, according to the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives.

The 56 guns “lost” every day was either stolen or sold on the black market to bypass background checks and gun ownership laws.
