I knew what the 10K number was when I saw it, I just couldn't believe you classified all killers the same way.
AR-15 SEMI AUTO rifles are flying off of dealers shelves here. One friend had been thinking about buying an AR-15 rifle, but delayed it until today.
All the news talk about banning the hated SEMI AUTO rifle has convinced many area residents to buy now before they are all gone.
Friend went to a small gun shop, and the owner said sorry, all sold out, sold 7 rifles today alone, no more on order, do not know when a resupply can be made.
Same friend went to a larger shop, where they had over a dozen articles, and promptly bought the 16" barreled M-4 variant. I had advised to get the standard 20" barrel, fixed stock but A3 variant with rail and detachable top carrying handle, to allow for plinking at tin cans using iron sights, but having the ability to easily mount a high scope, which will probably happen one day.
Naturally, the buyer has a perfect clean record and easily passed the background check pronto. Yet another hard working, tax paying citizens shucking out hard earned dollars, while we still have a valid second amendment, for now at least.
Next phase will be for me to help coach them on proper handling, shooting and probably zeroing the married couple's new toy.
They, like many others I suppose, are somewhat apprehensive about the future, and obviously wanted some security of their own, and not totally dependant on civilized society and 911 as the single, sole source of security.
The plus side is that both the city and state benefitted from the added sales revenue.
