Sellers: Gun sales up with fears of new laws

by Corbin Carson, Tucson Sentinel  |  published on November 30, 2012

At Guns Etc., Bryant Scatena examines an AR-15 he’s thinking about purchasing sooner rather than later because of fears that the government will curb sales of assault rifles.

“With the way things are going and the economy and our president and the bans that they’re putting on stuff, you know, we got to kind of protect ourselves too,” Scatena said.

Ron Sega, owner of Guns Etc., said his sales tripled shortly after the general election.

“We’re selling a lot of handguns, semi-automatics, and AR-15s,” he said. “Ammunition sales are up considerably.”

It was the same story from many of the 25 other Arizona gun store owners and clerks contacted by Cronkite News Service: Sales are up for reasons including President Barack Obama’s re-election, the struggling economy and havoc wreaked by Hurricane Sandy.

News organizations in many other states have reported the same.
