Some Indiana gun stores are reporting record sales, in keeping with historical pre-election upticks in sales, according to WTHITV in Terre Haute, Indiana:
“September was our record month for the seven years we’ve been open,” said owner William Behnke. “Sales have been very, very good the last couple of months and seem to be picking up with hunting season now.”
Behnke said many of those buying guns have done so out of concern for home security, and he said more women have taken an interest in guns over the past few years.
“We have more older couples,” Behnke said. “A lot of older couples come in and say, ‘I’ve never had a gun before, but I want one. I think I want one now.’”
