Guns selling at record pace on Oahu

Honolulu Police statistics suggest gun sales on Oahu could set a record this year.

As of Oct. 31, the number of guns sold was just under 21,000, on pace to surpass the record 23,400 sold in 2011.

Gun and gun store owners told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser ( they believe anticipation of President Barack Obama’s re-election has led to a spike in the sale of firearms on the island.

Young Guns owner Dale Hayama tells the paper he’s seen business grow since Obama was first elected in 2008. He says he saw a 30 to 40% surge in sales after Obama won a second 4-year term earlier this month.

Some fear the potential for stricter gun laws in an Obama administration while others suspect crime will increase with him in office.
