It took eight years for the ATF to shut down a gun store in Washington state that had nearly 2,500 guns stolen or lost, Raw Story reports.To put that into perspective, there were fewer than 200 combined guns missing at the state’s other 1,093 stores.

“Stunning,” James Zammillo, a former ATF deputy assistant director, told The Seattle Times. “That is just an incredible number.”

Among the citations against the Kesselring Gun Shop were the failure to report stolen weapons or to secure explosive material. The store also was cited for selling guns without trying to confirm the identities of buyers.

Still the gun shop continued to operate and even posted a record $14.6 million in sales in 2006, Raw Story reported.
