    I stopped by a liquor store yesterday. Liquor stores can sell all types of alcohol. They also sell setups, cigarrettes, cigars and accessories.

    Why not guns and/or ammo?

    You cannot smoke or drink in liquor stores.

    You cannot load and use your firearm in a gunstore except in a range if it is available.

    I would shop there. Why the hell not.

    Think of the gas and time saved by the public and controling authorities.

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    Because it makes no sense to do so. It would make about as much sense to sell guns and bullets at a shoe store. Thats why there are stores that sell hardware, stores that sell paint... and stores that sell guns.

    I would agree accept there is a bureau that works with those unrelated things.

    The government should then have the bureau of alcohol and tobacco and a bureau of firearms.

    There could be a licensing requirement to go into the store. You already have to be 21 to buy alcohol, pistols, pistol ammunition and 18 to buy smokes. 18 for long guns and ammo.

    The store could have an adult section for smokes and long guns for those 18 or older who can vote, enter contracts, be tried as adults and can serve their country but can't buy alcohol. Then an adult adult section for 21 and over who can buy alcohol, get a chl and buy pistols.

    I am trying to find a niche for the next great marketing trend.

    Walmart hates pistols and hard liquor. They will sell bullets, some long guns, wine and beer all day in a super walmart. Of course they sell other stuff, but, its all there under one roof.

    I do not want to compete with walmart.
