Gun purchase before election

<< < (2/7) > >>

I bought more yesterday. I am not not purchasing for investment purposes. I am purchasing for my own lawful purposes. I say get whatever you want in now instead of tomorrow.

Apparently, quite a few are thinking that way.

An article in the Wash Post says guns and ammo sales up 8-10%

From my conversations with gun store sales guys, people are coming in to get guns before the election.  Mostly ARs (we have a store in my area that specializes in black guns) and some AKs.  Some semi-auto pistols too.  Magazine sales are up and bulk ammo sales are way up.  There was a spike in sales around the time of the economic stuff in late September.

I recently read a newspaper story that concealed weapons permits in my state (Washington) were up 25% over last year.  Of course the newspaper didn't say it was because a socialist was about to be president but attributed it to people being reminded about gun rights after this summer's Heller decision in the DC gun ban case.

This summer a gun counter sales guy at Cabela's told me there'd be a line out the door of people trying to buy guns if Obama won ...

How sad is it that this is why they need banned.  (to them)

Wouldn't it be interesting if someone did a survey of how many Americans have purchased beans, bullets and band-aids before the election.  There was a story on our local news that gun sales are up 15% in our area, but so are sales of alcohol.
