Move Over, Obama: Threat Of Clinton Presidency Helping To Sell Record Number Of AR-15s

posted on November 3, 2016

According to a gun shop owner in Phoenix, the mere threat of a Hillary Clinton presidency is already helping to move a record number of guns—with one type far outselling the rest. 

“The AR-15s are outpacing every other thing in my store right now,” Ammo AZ owner Veerchart Murphy told 3TV News. “There are people coming in, buying three, five, six at a time.” 

Murphy says sales this year have increased 550 percent over last year, and that three times more AR-15s were sold in October—as Election Day coverage heated up—than in September. 

During her husband’s presidency, Clinton supported his “assault weapons” ban, and has since said in a book that AR-15-style rifles are “manufactured and designed for war, for killing people.” So while gun sales in general are up—the FBI processed more NICS checks in September than in any month on record—gun owners might be choosing to buy that AR-15 now because they know they may not have a chance later.
