Thanks to recent Muslim terrorist attacks in Chattanooga, Paris, and San Bernardino, guns are the biggest selling items for Christmas 2015
Thanks also goes to Barack Hussein Obama for his never-ending threats to issue executive orders which would further restrict gun sales. On the upside, people no longer feel they can wait to decide whether or not to get armed to protect themselves and their families from that suspicious-looking Muslim neighbor or the mosque down the street where jihadists always seem to be coming and going.
Today The convergence of fears over terrorism, a perceived threat of gun laws being changed and the Christmas holiday have sent gun sales soaring in what is already the busiest month of the year for firearm purchases. Guns are at the top of many Christmas lists, especially if November is any indication.
Sales of gun accessories have also spiked as firearm retailers have seen the biggest demand since Obama’s re-election in 2012. Last month, the FBI ran more than 2.2 million firearm background checks on potential buyers, a 24 percent increase from November 2014. On Black Friday, a record 185,345 background checks were processed by the FBI.
At places like Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna, Georgia, business has nearly doubled compared to a year ago at this time, according to manager Eric Wallace. “Ever since the Paris Islamic terrorist attacks, we’ve had a lot of customers coming in,” Wallace told Gabe Gutierrez on TODAY. “Buying first guns, buying guns to protect their homes, their families, and themselves.”
For many women, the gift of choice this year is a firearm more than jewelry. More companies have also tailored their approach to attract more women.
Companies like “The Well-Armed Woman” in Scottsdale, Arizona, have done brisk business selling accessories like holsters, concealed carry purses and bullet jewelry targeting female gun owners.
