When a tragedy involving guns happens, does it mean we are one step closer to bans and regulations? Studies from Bloomberg show that after each massacre or tragedy involving shootings, gun sales spike drastically. Are you afraid your guns might be taken away?
“One-day sales of handguns in Arizona jumped 60 percent on [Monday] compared with the corresponding Monday a year ago, the second-biggest increase of any state in the country, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation data. From a year earlier, handgun sales ticked up yesterday 65 percent in Ohio, 16 percent in California, 38 percent in Illinois and 33 percent in New York, the FBI data show, and increased nationally about 5 percent.
“Federally tracked gun sales, which are drawn from sales in gun stores that require a federal background check, also jumped following the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech, in which 32 people were killed.”
Do you believe guns will ever be banned in the U.S.A.? Did you go out an purchase a fire arm in the past week?
