Since 2005, 113,642 guns have been reported missing from the thousands of gun shops and dealers throughout the country.

It is not known whether these guns were lost, stolen, sold on the black market or delivered into the hands of felons or other prohibited users.

Yet the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is barred by law from requiring dealers to conduct inventories — which insulates gun sellers from even minor scrutiny at the possible expense of public safety.
