Americans Rush To Buy Guns (Again) In Wake Of Paris Attacks
Gun sales and concealed carry permit applications in the US have spiked in the days following the terror attacks in Paris, according to gun store owners.
Americans are exercising their Second Amendment rights in droves after witnessing the harrowing footage of innocent people being murdered by gunmen in the French capital, and being warned that the same could happen on home soil.
Fox News San Antonio carried comments by Texas Guns owner Jerry McCall who noted that he is serving “people … in their 70s and 80s who say they have never owned a firearm before but … think [they] need one in the house now.”
Those who recently purchased their first firearm following unrest in the US are also returning to buy more, according to the store owner.
WSFA News out of Alabama reports that gun stores are struggling to keep up with the demand.
“We were busy right out of the box” said Russell Durling who owns Last Resort Guns in Madison County, after the Paris atrocities.
“The truth of it is, when America is scared, America buys guns,” he added.
