Gun Store Sells 30,000 ARs After Orlando Terror Attack

posted on June 27, 2016

According to Fox News, the owner of giant gun seller Hunters’ Warehouse says the store sold 30,000 AR-15-style rifles in the first week following the brutal terrorist attack at an Orlando nightclub two weeks ago. 

According to Fox, the internet-based store carries 300,000 to 400,000 firearms, and it’s no secret what the best seller has been of late. Store owner Tom Engle told Fox Business that he doesn’t credit the high sales to the terror attack, but rather to the knee-jerk anti-gun response to it. 

“Shootings don’t push up gun sales,” he said. “It’s when the government starts talking about banning particular guns, and up go gun sales. When people lose their right to buy a particular gun or a particular type of gun, they go after them and they want them then.”

And before gun-banners have a fit: Yes, all of the sales—just like all internet sales of firearms—were made through Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs), which conducted the required background checks.
