Delaware Gun Sales Jump

posted on February 17, 2016

Gun purchases in Delaware dramatically increased in December and January, jumping by 26 percent from the same time a year ago. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 12,556 federal background checks were conducted for people buying guns in Delaware during these two months—an increase fueled by nontraditional gun owners seeking protection, firearm sellers and advocates say. 

“Much of that was due to an increase in handgun sales used for personal safety,” said Bob Miller, owner of Miller’s Gun Center in New Castle. “There’s a concern (about safety) that’s media-driven.” The increase in Delaware firearm purchases is just one more aspect of the ongoing debate over whether more guns in a community make people safer. Despite the ever-vocal anti-gun agenda, people in Delaware are taking it upon themselves to ensure their personal safety.
