Basic Business. Let the economy and consumer decide if there are too many, not regulation. If there are too many for the consumer and economy, some will close. When things change, some will open.

Jeff, define terrorism. A gunman taking out students or shooting up a mall is not gun violence; those are terrorist acts where the main intent is to incur as many casualties as possible. Most gun violence occurs through illicit activities, ie, drug deals, gang activity, etc. I believe if you research again using the above filters, you'll see that most gun violence occurs in those cities where concealed permits are not allowed. Law abiding citizens who carry actually reduce the gun violence rate in cities which allow concealed licensing. Everyone seems to think Orlando was a victim of gun violence; not so. This is true terrorism at its core. Think of the results if any of these latest gun-driven terrorist attacks (Roseburg, OR; Orlando, FL) were met by someone carrying. The casualties would have been a lot less. You'll never see anyone try to run amok in the NRA headquarters or a police station; their chances of dying would be too high. They only target soft areas where the most casualties can occur.

Concerning the poll on terrorism v. gun violence: Although terrorism is a concern for all Americans the reality is that we all have a better chance of dying due to gun violence than a terrorist attack. 36 people die every day in the US due to gun violence and another 103 people are wounded or commit suicide by guns every day.
