Americans have been racing to gun stores to purchase firearms and sign up for concealed-carry permit classes in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris, France. Many of those buying guns are doing so for the first time—and some who purchased their first gun ever amid the unrest of the Ferguson or Baltimore protests are now buying a second gun for extra security in the event of an attack.According to Russell Durling, who owns Last Resort Guns in Madison County, Ala., “We were busy right out of the box” following the attacks. “The truth of it is, when America is scared, America buys guns,” he added. Gun store owners are also seeing a surge in concealed-carry permit applications and course attendance. The Limestone, Ala., sheriff’s office has reported a huge spike in permits since the Friday attacks in Paris, and concealed classes at Texas Guns "have doubled in the last week."
