Gun Dealers, USA.
Duker, Laurie; And Others
In the United States, more than 11,500 adolescents' and young adults' lives are taken each year by firearms. Although Federal law prohibits minors from purchasing handguns, they typically get them by asking someone of legal age (18 years or older) to purchase them from one of the 256,771 Federally licensed gun dealers. This pamphlet answers several frequently asked questions about licensed gun dealers in the United States. Among the questions/answers are: how do adolescents who carry and use guns get them; how many gun dealers are in each state; how can the names, addresses and phone numbes of gun dealers in a city, county or state be obtained; and how can the number and types of guns sold in each state be ascertained, etc. It concludes with an order form for a list of federally licensed gun dealers.
