    Default Increase in Mass Shootings, Increases Gun Sales

    Increase in Mass Shootings, Increases Gun Sales

    With Monday’s mass shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C, gun sales have gone up.

    Owner of Texas Guns on Bandera Rd. in San Antonio, Jerry McCall says he’s seen a 40 percent increase in gun and ammo sales this week alone.

    “Individuals are concerned that the police will not get to them in time if they needed to protect their families,” McCall said. “It’s fear that brings them out to buy firearms.”

    Gun buyers just want peace of mind, that if something happens, they will be able to protect themselves, McCall said.

    “It's the fear factor,” he said. “They realize that if something happens that they must protect themselves and their families, no matter the situation.”

    Mass shootings help add to the paranoia, but also the fear that stricter gun control laws will eventually take away their second amendment right, McCall said.

    “The amount of guns that we’ve sold in the last five to six month has set all precedents for the United States, ever,” McCall said. “Ammo is in very short supply, manufactures can't keep up with the demand… that should say a lot about what people are thinking.”

    Black Blade: Should be armed regardless. That said, I am very happy to see more firearms in the hands of the people.

    The down side is that just as ammo was getting back on store shelves we may have another panic and "poof" it all disappears.
