Gun Sales Continue To Boom

posted on November 12, 2015

On the eve of entering a critical presidential election year, sky-high gun sales continue throughout the United States, with both South Carolina and Maryland recently reporting dramatic increases.

Darrell Golden, owner of South Carolina Gun Company in Greer, S.C., told FOX Carolina that his sales this year are up 15 percent from last year, speculating that political uncertainty is driving the increase. Meanwhile in Massachusetts, WWLP.com reported that the number of gun licenses in the state has grown by more than 65 percent since 2010.

These reports follow last week’s revelation that October became the sixth month in a row for record NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) background checks—an accurate indicator of gun sales trends. NICS processed nearly 2 million background checks in October, up by nearly 400,000 from last October’s total.
