A Gun Store on Every Corner

There's a Starbucks on every corner and apparently six gun dealers at every intersection.

Firearms & Frappuccinos compares the number of Starbucks to the number of firearm dealers in the United States. If you enter the name of a town into the map you can see the locations of all the local Starbucks coffee shops and the locations of all the local gun dealers. So, for example, if you search for Dallas, you will discover that there are more than twice as many gun dealers in the city as there are Starbucks stores.

According to Firearms & Frappuccinos there are 64,747 gun dealers in the US. That's more gun dealers than grocery stores & McDonald's restaurants. It also means that there are nearly six gun dealers for every Starbucks.
