Texas gun stores have seen a boom in sales in 2012–and Florida is no different. Some gun-store owners are reporting between 20 and 50 percent increases in sales this year, which some attribute to the election, Fox Tampa reports:
“I think people get a little antsy and are motivated to arm up,” Michael Dunn, the owner of Vets Surplus in Lakeland told FOX 13 on Monday. “It could restrict their firearm rights’ or increase fees associated with the purchase of ammo.”
Five months before election day, some gun shops are reporting a 20 percent increase in sales.
One gun show vendor tells us his business is up closer to 50 percent. We have seen a similar reaction inprevious presidential election years.
