The Supreme Court has ruled that the 2nd amendment applies to individual citizens. But how does that affect you? How does it affect the lives of your and your children? Who is packing a pistol? Should you be carrying one too? What you should know before you step out your front door.
If you are anti-guns, or afraid of guns, or just don't like them and don't want them in your house, then this blog is for you. (It might just change your mind)
Sales of handguns and ammunition are booming across the country, and retailers say it’s all about the November election.
Gun shop owners around the nation told
FoxNews.com that sales, brisk ever since President Obama was elected,
have spiked upward in recent months. And manufacturers are having so
much trouble keeping up with the demand that one, Sturm, Ruger &
Co., can’t keep up with demand. The Southport, Conn.-based company has
had to suspend new orders after taking orders for more than 1 million
guns in the first three months of the year. Smith & Wesson sales are
way up, as well.
“Sales usually increase this time of year with tax returns, but this year has been higher than most,” Mike Weeks, owner of Georgia Gun Store in Gainesville told FoxNews.com. “People are scared their gun rights are going to be curtailed after the election."
Weeks said his sales are up around 30 percent, and that he now sells ammo by the case.
“Usually people come in to buy three or four
boxes for target practice. Now they are coming in asking what kind of
deals they could get on a case,” he said.
Industry experts and gun shop owners alike
say the factor driving gun sales is the Nov. 6 election. There was a
similar spike before President Obama was elected to his first term, and
many gun buyers are saying they fear Obama’s re-election could mean more
regulations on firearms.
