Gun Sales Jump In Riot-Torn Charlotte

posted on September 24, 2016

The Washington Examiner reports that firearm sales in the Charlotte, N.C., area have spiked after several days of violent protests following the fatal police shooting of an African-American man. Justin Anderson, director of marketing for Hyatt Guns, told the Examiner that buyers were lined up at his store Thursday morning to buy self-defense shotguns and 12-gauge buckshot after riots rocked the city. 

"First off, our prayers are with law enforcement this morning,” Anderson said. “People are afraid. They see lunacy in the streets being perpetrated by criminals and they are gearing up to protect themselves. 

"We had people waiting at the door this morning who are looking at similar guns. People that were on the fence about buying a gun prior to last night are now making that purchase."
