Default BATF Licensing of Gunshops

There are 129,817 Licensed Gun Dealers in America. The breakdown of those "Dealers" is as follows:

61,562 are "Licensed Collectors," either private or for museums.
7,356 are "Pawn Shops (retail)"
51,438 are "Gun Shops (retail)"
all of the remaining License holders are manufacturers or importers.
There are approximately 270 MILLION guns in American civilian hands (no accurate count is available).

I though this could be a very interesting figure for those of you setting up a World War Z scenario where you need to know how many firearms are available.
