Worried that President Obama’s re-election could threaten their Second Amendment right to bear arms, gun owners are stocking up.
These fears were brought on by Obama’s statement in the second presidential debate that he wanted to help stop gun violence by re-introducing the assault weapons ban. Midwest Gun Exchange in Indiana reported a very busy post-election day. Shoppers surveyed what was available while they still had the opportunity.
“Throughout the industry, other dealers are talking about having sales increases because of people mindful and kind of wondering what will happen, if it is going to happen,” said Midwest Gun Exchange employee Rocco Rigsby. “They are fearing things are going to get banned, so they are coming in and taking a look to see what their options are and to see what is available,” said Rigsby.
